December 23, 2011 Length: 42:40
Fr Joseph Huneycutt welcomes you to St Joseph Orthodox Church, Houston, Texas for this Special AFR Christmas presentation: “God is With Us” by the St Romanos Chorale under the direction of Dr William Attra.
The St Romanos Chorale takes its name from the Syrian religious poet and hymnographer of the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church, St. Romanos, who is considered to be the greatest of the Byzantine melodist-poets. The Chorale is composed of singers from Orthodox Christian churches in the greater Houston area. The music is sung a cappella in both Byzantine and Slavonic styles, predominantly in English, but also in Greek, Arabic, and Slavonic. The Chorale has presented beautiful Orthodox Christian music to audiences throughout Texas and neighboring states at venues including major colleges and universities.
The special Christmas performance you are about to hear was recorded on December 10, 2011, at St Joseph Antiochian Orthodox Church, Houston, Texas.
"It is my firm belief that listening to Ancient Faith Radio can provide an important building block of an authentic Orthodox spiritual life. I listen to the Ancient Faith music feed while working at my secular job as a computer programmer. It helps cut back on idle conversation and sanctifies the time, bringing spiritual life to the mind and heart. I have determined to support your ministry regularly, and encourage others to do so also. Many Years!"
