JERUSALEM MATINS

The Jerusalem Matins is arguably the most aesthetically beautiful service of the entire Christian year. During the Matins, we accompany the Faithful Myrrh-bearing Women and their Companions, who, keeping Vigil at the Graveside, mourn the Crucified Christ. The hymns are hauntingly lyrical and reflect a profound spirituality, expressing the anguish of loss and the yearning for restoration and justice.
Our four-part choir AKORD has sung Dr. Paul Macenkos arrangement in both Ukrainian Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic Churches annually for almost tventy years.

We invite you to join us!
