  • My ultimate fav is def. Epouro!!

  • my all time fav r piehmot ghat the great for the pope, tenen, catholicon, sunday theotokia and i love sabani hobek
  • The first coptic hymn I listened and loved was "Epouro", but I loved too the "Alleluia fai pe pi".

    Coptic hymnology is not my native tradition (I am issued from syriac tradition) but I find the coptic one very interesting and structurate, and very original between the other oriental liturgical hymnologies.
    Nor byzantine(greek or "arabized"), nor latin, but diferent as we are (coptic and syriac who keep a specific language and music in the Middle East).

  • i love all the hymns its so hard to pick i love epouro, golgotha, pekethronos, espateer great, taishori, all the tasbeha.
  • Hey,

    Nice topic!

    I have to say there are occasions where you want to listen to/sing different hymns, so it's hard to just pick one favourite.

    What I love most in the midnight praise is the 7th part of the theotokia "Shere Maria"

    I also like "Shere Maria te ooro tevo..."

    One hymn that moves me like no other is a hymn of victory, a hymn of freedom: "O all you heavenly hosts" sung on Easter Sunday and Pentecost.

    "I like "tenen" too, the words are so enriching.

    I told you it was hard to pick one ;) ;) ;)
