O Holy Night!

Heaven, preserve us!

Repent. The end is most definitely nigh.

If you were a Roman I'd suggest 777 Hail Mary's as penance for linking to that...ahem...'song'. ;-)

Michael said...

:-D I'm glad you enjoyed it, Ian. I must say that your response is more mellow than I had expected to get. I had prepared myself for something more along the lines of "A pox upon you and your household!" :-)

Let's see what others think of it.

How dare you? That really is EXCRUCIATING! Especially the wail... I mean singing between 1:20 and 1:40!

Joe said...

Thank you for helping those of us who are new calander truly live a penitential last two days of hte fast by linking to that song!

Richard, if you think that's the worst of it, you clearly didn't manage to endure to the end, where he "sings" the refrain up one octave.

Joe, you're very welcome. It is part of my effort to bring you all home to the Old Calendar, you see? :-p I have to at least appear to be doing my bit.

This was posted in another place, with the note that it has been posted to a church's website, and then was swiftly removed after they received a greatly increased number of hits. Apparently, someone had saved it and posted it elsewhere, and there was a whole host of people listening to and discussing it.

Poor chap! :-D

lol Michael. Problem is I attend a New Calander church. If when I move I end up attending an Old Calander church, I will follow the Old Calander. To me the Calander is not a big issue as both parties hold the Orthodox faith in its entirety. Personally I prefer the Old Calander as that is what I got used to when I was first introduced to the Orthodox Faith (and it makes more sense to have everything on one calander instead of having Pascha on a different calander).

Now pews on the other hand are a whole other story. ;)
