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.
What are the Hours? When are they read, and what do they consist of? This video discusses such details and also presents an overview of the variable hymnography used at Divine Liturgy, including the troparia on the Beatitudes (i.e., the third antiphon), the troparia and kontakia after the Little Entrance, and the prokimenon, Epistle, alleluia, and Gospel. A few other practical details about Liturgy are also considered.
