A voluminous liturgical text (in large print) of the Matins Service as celebrated in the Greek Orthodox Church for each Sunday of the year, published semi-annually (Volume A entails the months of January through June; Volume B July through December). This work provides an opportunity for the Orthodox worshiper to follow and understand in both Greek and English (parallel columns) this most magnificent service. For Christians of other traditions, it provides a deeper insight into the thought, doctrine and worship of the ancient, universal Church, through hymns which date back as early as the first century. Translated and compiled by the Rev. Spencer T. Kezios, "Orthros" will undoubtedly find its place among the classics of 20th century Greek Orthodox translations.
