The Jerusalem Matins is arguably the most aesthetically beautiful service of the entire Christian year. During the Matins, we accompany the Faithful Myrrh-bearing Women and their Companions, who, keeping Vigil at the Graveside, mourn the Crucified Christ. The hymns are hauntingly lyrical and reflect a profound spirituality, expressing the anguish of loss and the yearning for restoration and justice.
Our four-part choir ęAKORDĽ has sung Dr. Paul Macenkoís arrangement in both Ukrainian Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic Churches annually for more than tventy years.
We invite you to join us!
The Jerusalem Matins will be sung this year in the following locations:
St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Shrine
952 Green Valley Crescent, Ottawa
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral
1000 Byron Avenue, Ottawa
