Hymns of Paradise
Fr. Apostolos Hill
"Hymns of Paradise: Hymns of Life and Hope" is the second recording of
Byzantine chant in English by Fr. Apostolos. It contains the hymnology
of the funeral service according to the practice of the Greek Orthodox
Church in North America. This recording includes all the hymns of the
service, including that of St. Isaac of Syria (With the souls of Thy
servants give rest...) and the eight tone cycle of St. John of Damascus.
Wonderfully presented, along with the Epistle and Gospel reading, the
recording sets forth both the beauty of the service and the theological
expectation of "returning to Paradise" in Christ. The CD includes a
24-page liner booklet that provides a description of the origin and
development of the service, all hymn texts in English and notes by the
Fr. Apostolos on the project.
