Enough with the Christmas muzak already! Let’s have something that’s both tuneful and prayerful. Words aren’t necessary.
Here’s a hymn from the Orthodox Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom, which was set to music by Tchaikovsky in 1878. It’s not Christmas music, strictly speaking, but it seems to me to fit in very well with the season. It’s the “Hymn of the Cherubim“. I know this performance is not instrumental, but if you don’t speak the language, it might as well be!
Let’s never forget the Reason for the season.
