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 TransfigurationMonastery 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 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 II Kathisma VIII-XIV

The Royal Hours: Christmas, Theophany, Pascha The "Royal Hours" are beautiful parts of the Orthodox
preparation for the three great Baptismal feasts of the Church: Christmas,
Theophany and Pascha. They are meditative services, allowing us to savor the
great themes and highlights of each feast. Two of the regular psalms of each
hour are replaced with those that prophesy the events in the incarnate life of
Christ, and appropriate stikhera, Old Testament prophesies and Epistle and
Gospel readings are added.
This book provides easy access to these beautiful prayers, hymns and texts in
English without the need for multiple books and sheets of paper. In this
format, they can easily be celebrated even if only the Lord's quorum of
"two or three are gathered together."
Each of the hours has been presented independently, so that if time and
circumstances are lacking to do all four on a given vigil day, perhaps at least
one can be managed. General rubrics are given, along with instructions for
grouping the hours in traditional practice.
The book contains full texts and rubrics for celebration with a priest.
However, for those in mission parishes without a regular priest and for those
living far from their parishes and unable to attend every service, these hours
are uniquely suited to being read, chanted and sung as readers' services.
The texts, including the Scriptural Psalms taken from the Holy Myrrhbearer’s
Monastery’s own Kathisma Psalter, and in the style of their popular
"Manual" series, are revised in accordance with the Greek Septuagint
translation. 178 pgs 6" x 8 1/2" format, wire bound.
