Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 8: $2640)

A 17th Century Version of "Christ Is Born"



Romeiko Ensemble performing a 17th century version of "Christ is Born" (Mode I) live at the Hellenic Library in Athens, Greece on December 13, 2006.

You can see this in high res video streaming at: http://www.liturgica.com/video/, as well as other hymns from this ground-breaking performance.

It should also be mentioned that the costumes worn for this performance were the same traditional costume worn by chanters in the Eastern Roman Empire prior to 1453.
