    1: Ni ethnoc tiro (high five sleepy ;D)


  • i love all hymns but my most most favortie have to be:

    1. Shere ne Maria (long,)
    2.khen o shot
    3.esmo epchois

    1.Je nai nan(the best ever!!!)
    2.psalm 150 (kiakh)
    3.rejoice o mary

    and of course i love the gregorian liturgy. and i also like it when the priests at our church do liturgy of Cyril and gregory in one.. they did it the fist day of jonahs fast...it was so nice ;)
  • shere ne maria is my fav! lol dont laugh! but it is my fav!
  • I duno, sure there is prefrences...but the Coptic hymns are way to extravegante to choose 1 or 2 or even 5 from the multitudes of hymns our Mother has provided us with. But tthats just my opinion!!
  • You're right Pslamist, but there are some hymns, that to me, whenever I sing them, I get goosebumps all over my arms from singing them. Especially when the church sings Je Nai Nan all together as one during the mass, the goosebumps are uncontrolable, and it's an awesome feeling.

  • :o :o :o :o :o o my goodness thats incredible do u no y bcoz that happens to me as well my gosh man this is reely scary lol yes with the have mercy song wow we mite b sisters

  • When the congregation sing as one .......WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....ooooffff.....its the best...this is the unity in the church...i get goosebumps toooo...!!

    There are some deacons out there that are under the impression that their voices HAVE to be heard ABOVE everyone elses (i have to admitt that i have fallen into this).

    There are different ways that our church sing in the service

    Quadratic Method (Antiphona)
    That is when the chanters sit on both sides responding
    to each other with parts of chanting.

    According to history, this way was used by the
    Jewish who were baptised and became Christians
    when they came to Alexandria.

    A condition of this way is that the higher in rank or
    eldest in monasticism should stand at the northern
    chorus, also he is the one that should start the tune.

    Solo Method: Leadership (Tractus)

    This is when one person only chants, (in the old days
    it had to be the priest), while the rest listen only and
    do not share in chanting.

    Chorus Method

    This is when the chanter starts a quarter of the hymn and
    the congregation finishes it and so on:
    a) Usually, the congregation’s response is the same
    eg. the response of the Second Haus, or the
    response of Saturday and Sunday Epsaly “O My
    Lord Jesus Christ...”
    b) Or, the response might differ a little bit eg. the
    Third Haus has 2 different responses
    c) Or, the response might be one word only as in the
    Big Haus.

    The Whole Church Chanting Method

    Where everyone chants and only the leader deacon might
    play the cymbals to tune the praise process.
    Every Haus has its fixed tune to end with and it is no
    ones choice to choose how to end it.
    reference: Spirituallity of praise (by HG Bishop Mettauos

    I am a big advocate for the The Whole Church Chanting Method, i love this because it brings everyone in the church as one, "one faith, one baptism"

  • hay shnoods we mite b sisters as well lol jkz
    yep they think their voices gotta b heard wen its like they r waking up the dead from the hrashness of their voice man its nasty
