VIDEO: Orthodox Liturgics

Part 3: Vespers: Focus On ”Lord, I Call”

Part 2

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 third lesson, Fr. Herman begins to discuss the service of Vespers by focusing on the ”Lord, I Call” psalms and the stichera that accompany them. We’ll look at several different possible scenarios on a Saturday evening in February to see how hymns drawn from the Octoechos, Menaion, and Triodion are combined in various ways. This will get us ready for a look at the complete order of Vespers in Lesson 4.

The PDF packet of the resources looked at this lesson are available at:
