Anthony Doherty Cherubic Hymn "Áãßá Óïößá" for a cappella SAÂar Chorus

2014 This beautiful text is sung during the Byzantine Divine Liturgy in conjunction with the Great Entrance procession with the Gifts (the bread and wine for Holy Communion). Choral settings are also used as motets or anthems in churches of the Western tradition as well as in choral concerts. Áãßá Óïößá (Haghia Sophia), meaning Holy Wisdom, is the name of the great patriarchal cathedral in Constantinople (modern Istanbul, Turkey), turned into a mosque by the Ottoman Turks and now a museum.
