What a great, inspiring work of worship has been accomplished in this statement of faith by the ancient Christian church in impressive liturgical form. The original Coptic language is translated into harmony with both English and Arabic. The actions of the priest and the choir are described in both living languages. The musical notes and corresponding chant syllables are clearly printed. Music scholars, religious scholars, researchers in ancient languages will all find rich rewards in this volume. The "ordinary" person-in-the-pew who loves Biblical Scriptures will also find confirmation and awe in the deep worship that has survived since the first century. The reader of this work will find the introductory remarks instructive to his study and worship. And if the reader has Arabic as his primary language, he will be impressed to have this volume also readable from back-to-front and left-to-right, with the English and Coptic also accompanying.

Verified Purchase
This is a book that contains the musical notation of the entire liturgy of St. Basil the Great used by the Coptic Orthodox worldwide today. It also documents all the ornamental voice inflections that make the Coptic Hymns so unique and complex. This is a great buy!

I agree with the reviewer below - we need to have a CD track listing so we can follow along in the book while we listen to the CD. That being said, it is an absolutely marvelous publication. Beautifully done and certainly an exquisite collection to add to anyone's library.
