Orthodox Music for Kids





.

This post is in honor of all the brave souls who have recorded their voices for the rest of us to enjoy! We have so many Orthodox CD's out there, from all jurisdictions...which are your family's favorites? I've found folksongs, along with more traditional feast-day hymns. The recording from the Makarios Seminary in Kenya -has always been a favorite of mine. The Africans sing with great joy to the beat of a drum in Swahili, Greek, and English. The Eikona sisters have put out great hymns in English, and "Panagia with Us All" includes the Jesus Prayer put to song as well as "O Heavenly King" - Glory to God for such resources! Please post your reviews too.

Glad to have found your blog from Michelle Melania's. We are new to Orthodoxy; our kids were baptized a year ago and my husband and I just about six months ago. I need all the help I can get in making this real and alive for them. Thanks!

Where can I find the Panagia with Us All album? I'd really like to teach my kids the Jesus Prayer song, but I don't know the melody. Is there anywhere I can hear it?
