    hey shnoda, we don't mind helping you at all, brother. however, it would be really helpful if you'd give us the exact hymns by providing their precise links. ('cause i don't know which specific hymn(s) you're talking about :-\ - there are many of them, you know) we'll be more than happy to help you, shnoda. okay... waiting for links of hymns... ;D
    (i think... ??? :-\ )

    salam ;D

  • Hey, how is it going, about the coptic hymns, they are referred back to the age of the apostole St mark when he came to egypt. About the tone of the alhan, they are actually the tones taken from the old egyptian (pharos) and they are very closely related. e,g the hymn of (epouro) is exactly the same tune as a hymn that the old egyptian use to sing when they use to invite their king. The hymn of (golgotha) is the same as a certian hymn that the old egyptian use to sing when they used to bury their dead people. So basically the coptic people took lots of the hymns from the old egyptian and they put the words themsleves for it, some of the hymns are lattin language but the tune is the same again, (by the way these information are right because I took it out of my encyclopedia of coptic hymns) so I hope it helps
