Khrytos Voskres - Christ Is Risen

Many times during the Easter Sunday Liturgy, the happy refrains of "Khrytos Voskres” are sung by the congregation. It is sometimes difficult for church visitors to understand why this tune, and its variations, is repeated so frequently during the Easter season. We should remind our visitors that in the Resurrection of Jesus, we are all resurrected from the bonds of death. Our joyful Easter tune, "Sohlasmo Zaspivaimo”   perhaps says it best when it proclaims "With His death He conquered death, and to those in their graves He granted Life!
