[STOTS Communications, South Canaan, PA] On Friday, April 28, 2017, an ambitious recording project was undertaken. Benedict Sheehan, St. Tikhon’s Seminary Director of Music, brought together members of the Monastery Church Choir, the Seminary Choir, along with several members of the Monastery Chamber Choir, to record a live celebration of the Divine Liturgy. The recording was completed at St. John the Baptist Cathedral, in Mayfield, PA, with gratitude to Mitred Archpriest John Sorochka for his hospitality and assistance!
Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean, was the celebrant, together with Fr. Ignatius Gauvain, Director of Student Life, and Deacon Jonathan Lincoln, Senior Seminarian. Following the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, all remained throughout the afternoon for patch sessions, under the direction of Producer Elias Dubelsten. It is hoped that the recording will be available some time in the fall.
