    I love the Valaam Choir. . . Their sounds bring me to the third heaven every time I hear them. . .

    In case y’all didn’t know, you can many of their songs in MP3 format on their website for free! http://www.valaam.ru/en/mp3

    It’s great!

    Thank you Father for this video. This certainly is one of my more favorite moments in the Divine Liturgy.

  4. Irenaeus of New York Says:

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

    “The mercies of the Lord I will sing for ever. I will shew forth thy truth with my mouth to generation and generation.”
    Psalms 88:2

    Thanks for the link to this gorgeous music. Is the score is available for church use?

    For the first time yesterday, I became very aware of the Beatitudes in the Divine Liturgy. I decided I need to put myself to the task of memorizing them.

    As blessed King David said, “I will lay up Thy word in my heart that I might not sin against thee.” Ps. 119:11

    Paul,
    There are numerous settings available for church use. I’d have to research to see about this one. See what I can do.

  10. Phil Says:

    Hearing the Beatitudes at Divine Liturgy has, from the first, been one of my favorite parts of Orthodoxy. They are the core of the Gospel.

  11. Aaroneous Says:

    This gave me a few minutes at work to be attentive and at peace, thank you.

  12. Karen Says:

    Beautiful! Thank you very much. It suddenly struck me as I listened that this video (or just to chant these verses) is a very good place to come when one’s heart is breaking. What a balm for the wounded soul! Yes, and how gently, reverently and purely the verses are sung. The monks’ stillness is evident. Blessed are You, O Lord, unto ages of ages. Amen.

    Karen,

    The picture at “blessed are the meek” is priceless.

  14. Moses Says:

    wow… these images are screaming loud!🙂

  15. James, the Brother Says:

    Darlene,

    I hope you are progressing well on your journey.

  16. Karen Says:

    Yes, priceless! All the images are beautiful, but two that struck me most deeply were the first at “for they shall be filled” and the face of the “grandmother” lighting her candle near the end.
