Divine Liturgy Armenian Apostolic Church

The Divine Liturgy (The Holy Badarak) is a divine dialogue, and it's subject is the Eternal Glory of God. In the various versions that have been sung for generations, the chants and prayers of the officiating Priest and Deacons, and the choral praise of the Choir blend into a humble vocal offering that is heartfelt and deeply moving. Each Sunday, in Armenian Churches throughout the world, our Divine Liturgy enables the entire congregation to grow spiritually, to move closer to the Lord's Light. I hope my version will, like those before it, nourish the spirit of all who hear it, and deepen our love for Christ....
