Product Description

The Harp of Glory is a major hymn of the medieval period that is scarcely known in mainstream Orthodox or Western churches, and derives from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church during the height of it's glory in the Middle Ages. Originating as a exquisitely crafted love song to the Virgin Mary from a monk scholar-musician wandering the highlands of Ethiopia, The Harp of Glory is essentially an "An African Akathist" that sings the praises of the Most Holy Theotokos in alphabetically arranged acrostic stanzas. A deeply religious and literary treasure of great renown in the Christian East, The Harp of Glory reads beautifully as a lyrical poem and will be of immediate interest to students of Church History and Eccesiology.
