Two Hymns From Vespers

Two hymns from Vespers sung by the St. Vladimir’s Seminary Men’s Choir, sung at a concert a couple of weeks ago at St. John Chrysostom Orthodox Church in York, Pennsylvania:

Gladsome Light: “the earliest known Christian hymn recorded outside of the Bible that is still being used today.”

Song of St. Simeon: sung at the conclusion of Vespers.

One Response to Two Hymns From Vespers

  1. Both of those songs are wonderful. I didn’t know until recently that Simeon the God-bearer was one of the people responsible for translating the Scriptures into Greek, giving us the Septuagent.
