This is the second part of Deacon John El Massih’s talk on Vespers from the 2018 Sacred Music Institute. Deacon John used the vespers service of July 22, 2018, as a model to talk about the parts of the service and the specifics of each hymn. In this episode, Deacon John covers Vespers from O Gladsome Light to just before the Apolytikia at the end. Come back next week to hear about the end of vespers and the differences between daily and great vespers.
