Order No. 007705
In English. Sung by All Saints of America Mission, Homer, Alaska.
A collection of ancient hymns for the weeks preceding the Nativity of Christ, Christmas day itself, and the weeks following (including Theophany).
Many of these original melodies and texts are attributed to St. Romanos (6th c.), St. Andrew of Crete (7-8th c.), Saint John of Damascus (7-8th c.), St. Cosmas of Maiuma (7-8th c.), Saint Theodore the Studite (9th c.), Saint Theophanes the Branded (9th c.), and Saint Joseph the Hymnographer (9th c.) to name a few. Many of these melodies (Prosomia) are set to dozens of other texts throughout the year as well in the liturgical books. They have only recently been metered and transcribed into English.
