The Orthodox Christian Network is proud to share this Paschal video clip from the choir of the School of Ecclesiastic Music in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Byblos and Botrys. It is beautiful and mesmerizing, we hope you enjoy it!
SEM is the School of Ecclesiastic Music in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Byblos and Botrys (Mount Lebanon) – Lebanon. It has been established in 1997 with the blessings of His Eminence Metropolitan Georgios Khodr. SEM choir was established 2 years later in 1999.
The school aims at spreading Byzantine Liturgical Music in Lebanon, Antioch and in the world. In this technological and entertaining era, SEM foresees Byzantine Music as an important means to attract and fascinate the youth of the third millenium to church and to its liturgical services, thus to the committment in community life.
Through concerts, recordings and TV programs, SEM also aims at providing audio and video material for the Orthodox media in Antioch.
