This course covers the liturgical cycle of the Orthodox Church year. Each class will included a discussion of the history of the services, the liturgical books needed to serve, rubrics, the order of the service, and important hymns from each service. By the end, students will understand the ranks of services, the daily and festal cycles of services, where to find rubrics and how to put together services for reading or singing, and the basics of church etiquette and proper order. The class will use the book Russian Church Singing, Vol. 1, by Johann von Gardner as a text.
