Lent 2013 Day 16: It’s a small world :)

It’s late afternoon; I’m tired from a long day at work and just had some food. I sit at my desk at home to waste sometime online while I look after little Adam, my youngest. I almost fall asleep at my keyboard. I notice an add request, the name sounds familiar, but I’m sure I don’t know this person?! I try to look at his page, but there is not much information there .. hmm.. what now?

Not noticing he had sent me a message earlier I write him a note asking if we knew each other? After getting his response I noticed the first message he had sent.

I read his note, and somehow his name and face clicked. I saw him a couple of days ago in a YouTube video. I searched YouTube and located the recording of a lecture by Lykourgos Angelopoulos during a byzantine music conference. He was lecturing about byzantine choirs, and there he was translating and explaining the concepts Angelopoulos was laying out and demonstrating with his choir.

I felt really proud that he has been following this blog and hope to meet him this week when he comes to Palestine. My new friend on Facebook is:

Dr Alexander Lingas, Senior Lecturer
Centre for Music Studies
City University London

and

Founder and Artistic Director of Cappella Romana:

Cherubic Hymn Text:

We who mystically represent the Cherubim sing the thrice holy hymn to the life-giving Trinity. Let us set aside all the cares of life that we may receive the King of all …invisibly escorted by the angelic hosts. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

— Jack Rabah
