  1. Bruchner’s Te Deum is a fitting piece for the glorious Resurrection and Bright Week.

    Headphones greatly help to enter the experience. The visual with the recording displays opposing Latin and the English translation. I find that I can follow the Latin fairly well to match the choir.

    Of particular interest is the pianissimo at Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus that builds to a crescendo, and the trombone flourish at about 2:54 that follows te Prophetarum laudabilis numerus.

  2. Kalo Pascha, George!

    I wanted to remind people of a special event in the Washington, D.C.area honoring the work of a writer on this forum:

    This is such a great way for her to spread the glory of Orthodoxy and the message of Pascha. We are all blessed by her knowledge and work.

  3. I won’t tell you anything new, but this is just the same with everything in life.
    You would think history showes us anything, but no.
    Hate all you want but the world changes rapidly, and we have no control whatsoever over it.
    E.g., imagine Barack had enough balls to put Russian bear to his place, but it seems like it’s never happening, welcome WW3.
    A very deep post, thanks!
