I am a complete novice at hymns, and I don't have access to an al-han. So...I was wondering how you guys started/ or are learning apart from alhan (which I bet would be a jewel). By the way- complete novice. I can read Coptic, but that is far as it goes, really.
I have seen some the resources- just was wondering what was the most effective way of utilising them.
Also, what hymns should I start with, especially for this season (the Holy 50 Days/Pentecosal).
