Serbia: Russia Loves You!

Russians and Serbians have always been allies and friends. We are united by our common Orthodox Faith, and there is no Russian alive who does not support our Serbian kin without reservation. Kosovo je Srbija!

Russian Folk Song. Выйду ночью в поле с конём. I Shall Leave for the Field Tonight on My Horse. Peresvet Male Chamber Chorus

Filed under: 19th century,art music,choral,Cossack,folk music,Russian,vocal — 01varvara @ 00.00

A beautiful folk song sung by the Peresvet Male Chamber Chorus. The first 35 seconds feature the soloist singing alone, unaccompanied, then the chorus gradually breaks into full harmony. This video is of a live performance in April 2008 in Podolsk, the soloist is Vladislav Kosaryov. Get a load of those LOW Russian basses! Dreamy…

Chrtistian Orthodox Worldwide

“This is a video I made about our awesome Orthodoxy. This video goes through a lot of different Christian Orthodox churches from all around the world. Some pictures of Christian Orthodox churches are from nations like Serbia, Greece, Russia, Syria, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Jordan, India, Japan, Ethiopia and lots more… Also, some famous Christian Orthodox individuals!”

This video by a young Serbian student is a must-see! It shows the vigour and creativity of our faithful. No bad tree bears good fruit…

Noch Tikha. Quiet Night. Russian kolyadka

One of our Russian kolyadki is matched with contemporary photos of Orthodox Chrisitians at prayer and feasting. My intent was to “enflesh” Orthodox life, both our worship and our celebrations. The final image is “The Nativity of Christ” by the contemporary Russian artist Pavel Popov. The first image is the cathedral at Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville NY during the winter Christmas season.
