Special chant for the Prophecy of Ezekiel
Posted 04 April 2012 - 08:35 AM
Does anyone know of an online resource with either instruction or the notation for the special chant used for reading the Prophecy of Ezekiel during Holy Week? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It depends which one you mean and in which language!
If it is the fairly common Russian version (which commences something like "lah-lah soh-soh ti-ti lah-ti-doh.... soh-soh lah soh fah# soh mi") it may possibly be found in English in one of the Holy Week music books published by Saint Vladimir's Seminary several years ago (Vol 3?). It's actually quite a simple chant.
There are also several commercial recordings (one on Ikon Records, from the Patriarchal Cathedral in London) which (if you can find it) you might transcribe in Church Slavonic and then adapt into English if that is what you want. There are, no doubt, several versions available on a well known video clip site, from which you could learn and then annotate your chosen text.

Since posting this question, I received the music to this prophecy in the Prophetologion edited by Peter Gardner. I did my best to put together a recording of this melody in English so I can learn it better myself, but in case it is useful to others, I have created this YouTube video:

Beautiful chanting, Russian, Serbian tradition correct? This is read just before the Epistle on Great and Holy Friday. Saint Gregory Palamas Monastery has a digital Chanters Stand and Holy Friday is April 29. http://www.agesiniti.../dcs/dcs.html,
