THE HOLY PASCHA 

Passion Week is the peak season of the Coptic Orthodox calendar. It is considered a Spring time, where love and affection intensifies between Coptic Christians and Their Christ who through this Holy week took Himself and the Church through the pilgrimage of Salvation, crossing the sea of Death with His people, drowning the devil and His forces. The Tunes of this week are sombre and sad. This sadness is not due to the fact that we are conducting a funeral, but rather because we are sad for the sin which caused the incarnate Son of God to pass through pain, suffering and death.

The music and chant are refreshing, leading one’s soul to repentance and closeness with God. They display a sense of strength and hope, where the Church never forgets that Passion Week is always crowned with a mighty and victorious resurrection.
Dr Ragheb Meftah, the director of the Church Music section of the higher institute of Coptic Studies, has been successful in recording this treasure, and ornamenting it with the blessed voices of His Holiness Pope Shenouda III and His Grace Bishop Gregorious. We are indebted to him for his kind written permission for the Coptic Orthodox Sunday School in NSW to reproduce his wonderful labour of love on CD. While the recording technology of the original vinyl records goes back to the 1970s, Mr Don Bartley has succeeded in converting this valuable material to CD without losing any of its original beauty. Such work shows his artistic and technological talent.

This recording commemorates the occasion of the enthronement of the first Coptic Orthodox Bishop for Victoria, Southern and Western Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand, His Grace Bishop Suriel, may the Lord grant His Grace strength and wisdom, through the prayers and supplications of the Virgin Saint Mary the Theotokos.
