VIDEO: Orthodox Liturgics

Part 5: Matins: Focus on the Canon

Part 4

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.

Much as we began our study of the entire order of Vespers by focusing on “Lord, I Call” and its stichera, so we’ll begin to learn about Matins by first looking at the Canon, which many find to be a daunting form of hymnography to understand and to do. Once we've become familiar with this central element of Matins, we’ll then zoom out to look at the entire service.
