St. Tikhon’s Monastery, the oldest Orthodox monastery in America, has published an in-depth, twelve-part video series on the fascinating yet complicated topic of Liturgics for Readers and Choir Directors in the Orthodox Christian tradition.
In this first lesson, Hieromonk Herman introduces the liturgical books used in the Church’s daily services: the Hieratikon and Horologion; the Menaion; the Triodion, Pentecostarion, and Octoechos; and the Typikon. Various English editions of each text are presented.
Knowing what each book is, what it contains, and when it’s used is the indispensable foundation for grasping the Church’s liturgical order.
