Hymns of Paradise: Hymns of Life and Hope (mp3 download)
Item No. 006082D
In English. Chanted by Fr. Apostolos Hill
A collection of hymns from the Eastern Orthodox funeral service in the Byzantine tradition. The recording includes the entire service (including the Trisagion), and is complete with the Epistle and Gospel readings. Clearly presented are the core hymns of the service composed by St. Isaac the Syrian and St. John of Damascus.
While it is “funeral music,” the chant presentation is joyous and beautiful, conveying the theological underpinnings of the Christian hope in the resurrection.
Artist: Fr. Apostolos Hill
