|Orthodox Psalter Psalms 3 CD Set|
A beautiful 3 audio CD set of The Psalter from our friends at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross (2011). They have recorded the reading of the Psalter in English on three compact discs (214 minutes). The text of the Psalms was translated by Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Brookline, MA, from the 1821 Moscow edition of the Greek Septuagint Psalter, the most trusted and reliable of all extant printings of the the traditional Greek text of Orthodox Church. The Psalms are read in a manner common to Orthodox prayer services: a simple intonation minimizing any possibility of subjective interpretation. The arrangement of the Psalms into tracks on this disc also follows the liturgical practice of the Orthodox Church, where the whole Psalter is divided into twenty Kathismata and each Kathisma into three stases. Each stasis is concluded with a Trinitarian Doxology. The Psalter is read (spoken) by a monk of the Hermitage of the Holy Cross. The packaging is full-color, with the three discs attached to a tri-fold “digi-pak”, all of which slides into a sturdy slipcover. Our hope is that those who purchase this recording will reap years of spiritual benefit from the use of the recording, which is an excellent accompaniment on a daily commute, road trip, or a day at work (from the Hermitage of the Holy Cross).
Disc I Kathisma I-VII
Disc II Kathisma VIII-XIV
Disc III Kathisma XV-XX

Additionally, the revision brings these books in line with Revised
Liturgical English (RLE), developed here at St Tikhon's Seminary and
Monastery as a dignified English setting for the services that is both
easy to understand yet not a concession to contemporary English as has
been tried in earlier translations. RLE is used in all our publications
of service books and prayer books from at least 2008 onward. For those
linguistically inclined, this means that the language herein is
consistent with our Apostol, our Morning and Evening prayer books, and
the Great Book of Needs.
Also included are Prayers Before and After Communion, Special Hymns,
Verses and Antiphons for the Festal and Paschal Cycle, Dismissals for
the Year, and a Monthly Calendar of Saints. Measures 8.5" x 11" Hard cover.
