St. Niketas on the Practice of Orthodox Music
May 24, 2009 Length: 13:21
What might Orthodox singers in the 21st century learn from a Father of the 4th? In this broadcast, which includes portions taken from a recent retreat, Professor Dimitri Conomos reads a passage from the little-known St Niketas of Remissiana, which speaks with a startling "modern" voice on the question of how to sing in an Orthodox manner in the divine services.
"I really feel dependent on Ancient Faith's music service. And I'm not even an Orthodox Church member. I listen to a wide variety of music on the internet, ranging from r&b classic jamz to various jazz genres to operatic arias, and onwards. But what I listen to most of all by far is Ancient Faith's liturgical music, which I frequently have on for hours at a time."
