Christianity in Syria: Ancient Origins, Present Situation, Uncertain Future
with
Sebastian Brock, David Taylor, Anthony O’Mahony, Tim Bowman and Lujaina Issa.
De Sebastian Brock and Dr David Taylor will give the historical background and context of Christianity in Syria. Anthony O’Mahony, Director of the Centre for the Study of Eastern Christianity, Heythrop College, London will speak on the present situation in its wider religious and political context: Mok Michael Oez (Syrian Orthodox) will possibly also speak on the current situation.
Tim Bowman with Lujaina Issa will talk on the Monastery of Mar Mousa. Tim lived for a period as a recluse attached to the monastery, which was re-founded by the Jesuit priest, Fr. Paolo dall’Oglio, and plays an ecumenical and interfaith role. Founded in C6th, 80km north of Damascus, the monastery’s patron is St Moses the Abyssinian who was, in local legend, an heir to the king of Ethiopia who abandoned his heritage and became a monk in Egypt, the Holy Land and finally Syria where he was martyred by Byzantine soldiers. The monastery, under the Syriac Catholic Church which formally united with Rome in the 1780’s is a spectacular building clinging to the eastern slope of the Anti-Lebanon. Its C11th church has frescoes dating to C11 -12th. Abandoned during the C19th, the buildings have been restored since 1984 with the assistance of the Syrian and Italian governments, and the new monastic foundation began there in 1991.

TICKETS through St Bartholomew-the-Great


Programme
The full programme at the Priory Church of St Bartholomew-the-Great features Medieval Byzantine chant, the fraternal repertoire to Latin chant in the West. It opens with music for the celebrations of Holy Week composed in and around Jerusalem from the seventh to the ninth centuries by the city’s great church fathers: Patriarch Sophronios, Kosmas the Melodist, and Saint John Damascene. This music receives its UK premiere with this tour performance. The programme continues with excerpts of the hauntingly beautiful Great Vespers for the Feast of St Catherine of Alexandria as it might have been celebrated at her monastery on Mount Sinai in Egypt during the fifteenth century. This portion of the programme is featured on Cappella Romana’s recent CD release ‘Voices of Byzantium’ published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.


Great and Holy Friday in Jerusalem
Medieval Byzantine Chant from the Typikon of the Anastasis (the Church of the Holy Sepulchre), including works by Kosmas the Melodist (8th c), Romanos the Melodist (6th c), Theophanes Protothronos (9th c), and Leo VI the Wise (866–912).

Interval

The Vespers of St Catherine
Medieval Byzantine Chant for a festal Vespers from ancient Sinaïte manuscripts, including the works by St John Koukouzeles (late 13th-early 14th c) and Manuel Chrysaphes the Lampadarios (mid-15th c), cantor to the last Emperor of the Byzantines (the Eastern Roman Empire).

Topics covered will include the poetic and musical forms of Byzantine hymnography and music, the hermeneutics of Byzantine chant, and the adaptation of Byzantine chant into English. Following a short interval, the choir of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music, led by Fr. Joseph Paliouras, will participate in a short recital with Cappella Romana.
