Chants of the Dormition of Virgin

The chants of the service of the Dormition are one of the most beautiful ones - solemn and quiet and melodical. You can download the chants in Russian in mp3 sung by the choir of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra and the choir of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra

Neither the tomb, nor death, could hold the Theotokos, who is constant  in prayer and our firm hope in her intercessions. For being the Mother  of Life, she was translated to life by the One who dwelt in her virginal  womb!

The angels, as they looked upon the Dormitionof the All-immaculate one,  were struck with wonder,seeing how the Virgin went up from earth to  heaven./In thee, O Virgin without  spot, / the bounds of nature are overcome: / for childbirth remains  virgin / and death is betrothed to life. / O Theotokos, Virgin after  bearing child and alive after death, // do thou ever save thine  inheritance.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
