Coptic Hymnology II will focus on moderate to advanced Coptic hymns in the Lenten season of the Coptic liturgical calendar. More specifically, these hymns will be taken from the weekday liturgies of the Great Lent season. They will include: Long Kyrie Eleyson (Verses of Cymbals), Alleluia Ei-e-ee, Nefsenti, Share Efnouti, Entho Te Tishori, Ethveti (English), Somatos, Meghalo (Lenten weekend). Each week a new hymn is taught through video files and custom hand-written musical ornaments. Each lesson includes spiritual, theological, and practical commentary on each given hymn. The student is then expected to learn, record, and upload that hymn for grading. Additionally, each week, students are required to offer an online post reflecting on the hymn, its meaning, and its spirituality, bearing in mind its placement within the broader framework of the given liturgical service.
