ancient tune St.Cyril Liturgy recording???
edited March 2014
Does anyone know where i can get a recording of the St.Cyril Liturgy with the ancient tune (khen oushot tune)? good quality please and thank you!
i always thought the ancient tune to the liturgy of saint cyril was lost... where'd you get that it was prayed in the khen oo shot tune?
there are some tunes of the liturgy that are handed down by M Tawfik. Not the whole liturgy was lost. The part that Mark is talking about is here:
the tune itself was not handed down but the assumption is that it's the same as khen ooshot....many priests just construct that sentence on khen ooshot to follow that teaching. Abouna Metias' doesn't think so though:
thanks minatasgeel.... and avvakaras I heard it by a monk in St. Moses Abbey in Texas but i lost the recording
where could someone get the Tawfik recording? is the HICS recording just as good?
M. Tawfik only recorded the beginning of the commemoration (nenioti to nenioti ethouab) and the conclusion Ook oti je anon (
He also recorded the Diptych but it was done with St. Basil's set.
from hearing the recordings of Abouna Metias, it sounds like it.
no minatasgee it was abouna bishoy
Muallem Tawfik recorded, Nenioty, Okoti, and The part that is supposedly like khen oushot is not actually supposed to be. I have the recording of muallem tawfik saying it in the same tune used by Abouna Mettias.

Muallem Mikhail also recorded Okoti je Anon as well. and I have that recording.
We only have 4 hymns preserved from the Cyrilian Liturgy.
The introduction to the commemoration (Nenioty)
The conclusion of the commemoration (Okoty Je Anon)
The diptych (Owoh Nai Nem also said in Basil)
The two parts of "That I may praise You" and "Oh God who has...Ahithophel" (Hina Entenhos & Efnouti Feetavgor)
Muallem Tawfik has recorded all these hymns in their original tunes.
For the record, in case nobody knew, I love St Cyril!
