RE: The Orthodox Church
I was listening Eksomologiste by Kabarnos while I was reading the other thread about Biblical practices and wanted to share it in that thread as it went slightly offtopic about worship music, then opened this thread and saw that you beat me to the punch Roosh.

I have a "funny" story about it, I first heard the Eksomologiste by Kabarnos on Youtube last December, and it inspired me to listen to Greek chants for the next couple of hours, and that in turn inspired me to go to the Sunday Liturgy next morning for the first time after several months. When I arrived to the Temple of Saint Sava for the Liturgy I found that the choir for this day was Greek and they sang the Greek chants. Apparently there was some kind of organised visit from Greek Orthodox Church to Serbia at that time, I could see a lot of Greek teenagers in and around the Temple, so they arranged a common Liturgy for that morning.

I was genuinely disappointed the moment I heard it slowing down.

I attended a liturgy in an Orthodox monastery (Holy Trinity Monastery in New York). It was intense. There were about 25 men participating in it, all in robes. It was like the pro leagues.

Ah, small world. I heard of the Holy Trinity Monastery, but I know it's part of ROCOR (The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia). My cousin is a Russian Orthodox Priest whose parish is also part of ROCOR as well.

These guys are pretty hardcore Russian Orthodox.

The interesting thing about these Russian Orthodox Priests is that they use LOVE using incense.

When my cousin's father (my late father's oldest brother) passed away at 92 a few years ago, I attended the funeral at a Russian Orthodox Church with my folks in my hometown. Holy crap...there were 6 Russian Orthodox Priests from other ROCOR parishes plus my cousin. Each priest used their own incense during the funeral service (chants, liturgy, reading, hymn, etc.).

Let's just say the entire church was filled with smoke that one could barely see and breathe. My father was amused and he was kind of smiling a little bit. All he could say was, "Cripes...too much incenses". lol

There's an idea - Vencer™ - Vape censers for priests.

Mini smoke machines that use vape juice and fit in the censer.

Even if it wasn't the Orthodox Church, you know something like that was thought up and built by men!

When I first saw that monster thurible, I immediately imagined a nude Miley Cyrus riding it back and forth across the church, streaming smoke.

Is there hope for me?

These amazing recordings display the deep soul and spiritual beauty of Orthodox music. The cultural fruits of immense suffering, they bring tears to my eyes every time.

RE: The Orthodox Church
Tchaikovsky: Liturgy of St John Chrysostom
Quote:Composer: Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Artists: National Academic Choir Ukraine ‘Dumka’, Yevhen Savchuk (conductor)

"I attend Mass frequently. The liturgy of St John Chrysostom is one of the most exalted works of art. Anyone following the liturgy of the Greek Orthodox service attentively trying to comprehend the meaning of each ceremony will be stirred to the very depth of his being. I am also very fond of evening prayers. There is nothing like entering an ancient church on a Saturday, standing in the semi-darkness with the scent of incense wafting through the air, lost in deep contemplation to find an answer to those perennial questions: wherefore, when, whither and why?" These are the words of Tchaikovsky writing to his patron Nadezhda von Meck (who he never met), and he continued, ‘As you can see, I am still bound to the Church by strong ties, but on the other hand I have long ceased to believe in the dogma … this constant inner struggle would be enough to drive me out of my mind were it not for music, that great comforter, the most exquisite gift Heaven has bestowed on a mankind living in darkness.’

Tracklist
Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Op. 41:
00:00:00 I. Lord, have mercy
00:03:11 II. Glory be to the Father
00:07:21 III. O come, let us worship
00:11:37 IV. Alleluia
00:12:47 V. Glory be to Thee
00:16:40 VI. Hymn of the Cherubim
00:24:30 VII. Lord, have mercy
00:26:34 VIII. The Creed
00:31:01 IX. The mercy of peace
00:34:18 X. We sing Thee
00:37:36 XI. It is meet
00:41:43 XII. Amen, and with Thy spirit
00:43:25 XIII. Our Father
00:47:18 XIV. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens
00:50:32 XV. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord




Liturgy of St John Chrysostom (Valaam Monastery)
Quote:The Valaam Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom. Hierodeacon Herman (Ryabtsev) with the brethren of the Valaam Monastery

I don't speak a single word of Russian, but I could listen to Valaam monastery chants all day regardless.
