|St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church
5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
St. Mark's Washington DC honored to invite and share with the Washington Dc Area it's Christian Coptic Orthodox faith represented in a night of praise with David Ensemble Orchestra from Egypt , Event is in English, Arabic and Coptic languages.
David Ensemble was established in 1975 and was composed of four artists: George Kyrillos, the ensemble conductor, chanter and lute player; Nagi Fayek, pianist; Edward Hanna, violinist; and Moris Aziz, guitarist. They specialized in performing “Coptic Hymns” which are about 2000 years old and have survived the past centuries, reaching us generation to generation through oral tradition.
This hymnal tradition is considered the natural continuation of the Pharaonic hymns, and exist today through preservation by the Coptic Orthodox Church, which is generally considered to be a miracle that astonished the entire world!
The ensemble is also distinguished for presenting the psalms which were written and composed by David the Prophet about 5000 years ago, the music of which had perished. Nothing remained but the meaningful words, which fathom the soul and scare the spiritual hosts of wickedness. The Ensemble put music to the words through a deeply spiritual and scientific process. Many people feel that the tunes might actually be those composed by David the Prophet himself.
