"Orthodox Christian worship cannot take place without singing"

"Another way of putting it is that Orthodox worship is singing."

The remarks are from Igumen Sergius, Abbott, St. Tikhon's Monastery, in Pennsylvania state, USA.

Here is a short documentary at YouTube on efforts to teach the next generation of Orthodox liturgical singers in the United States; it also touches on the funny culture clash between 'holy terror' Russian singing instructors and their American choirs.
