I have a couple of questions regarding the cymbals and the triangle in the Coptic church.
- How the cymbals and the triangle came into the Coptic church.
- There's a contradictory teaching about the cymbals: some books and many priests and cantors teach that the cymbals are used to adjust the pace of the hymn. If that statement is true: why are cymbals not used in Lenten weekday liturgies?
- If the cymbals are used to adjust the pace of the hymn, what is the triangle used for?
