Matins (Orthros) Music

Page Under Construction

In the Russian tradition, Matins is traditionally served on Saturday evening as part of the All-Night Vigil. In the Byzantine and Southern-Slavic tradition, however, Matins (or Orthros) is served on Sunday Morning prior to the Divine Liturgy.

This site will feature mainly music from the Russian tradition, though we will include some other styles, such as Kuskokwim, Serbian, and Znamenny Chant as well.
