Just a Little More Easter (Actually, A Lot More) From Georgia

The Easter Vigil (Resurrection Matins and Divine Liturgy) is a marathon that makes the Roman Catholic vigil resemble a walk in the park.

The link below comes from Georgia (the country, not the state), where John Graham, a historical musicologist, lives and leads cultural tours.  Click on different bits on the videos from this monastic celebration. It’s really rough, “guy music,” at its Caucasian best. Enjoy it!

Christ is Risen!

  1. Thanks for the link Mary Jane! Let me also recommend another post, where I've made the musical notation for a half dozen variants of the Paschal troparion "Christ is Risen" available as downloadable pdfs. For choir directors and church musicians, this will be of particular interest: http://www.johngrahamtours.com/kriste-aghdga/
