O Virgin Pure!

virgin-maryORTHODOX CHURCH: Orthodox Christans cherish the Virgin Mary as the foremost among the Holy Saints, as she gave birth to the Son of God, Jesus Christ. This beautiful hymn – O Virgin Pure – is dedicated to her.

The next music video is in English too. It’s an Orthodox chant, sung in the Hagia Sofia in Constantinople, the foremost cathedral in the lands of the Christian Byzantines (330 – 1453 AD).

In 1453 the city was conquerred by a Muslim army. Its name was changed in 1926 to Istanbul in present days’ Turkey. Hagia Sofia serves nowadays as a museum.

The third music video is a Greek Orthodox Christian hymn, sung in the Hagia Sofia too. I find it very beautiful, hope you do too.
