Join us virtually at 4pm on Sunday, May 23, as the Cathedral Music Ministry presents The Dushe Moye Mass by the Rev. Dr. David T. Gortner, rector of St. Luke’s Church in Coeur d’Alene.
Dushe Moya translates from Old Slavonic to “my soul” and is an expansion of the phrase “Blogoslovi, dushe moya, Gospoda” or “Bless thou the Lord, O my soul” from the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Written in 1996, this musical setting—in the Russian Orthodox musical style—of the entire Eucharistic celebration stretches beyond our usual Western plainsong, or metered styles, and draws us into the patterns of music and worship found in another part of the worldwide Christian family. It will be available for viewing on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
