ENGLISH HYMNS

There is currently a movement occurring with a group of young Coptic Orthodox deacons across Canada to standardize all English Liturgical hymns. The hymns posted on this page will refer to these standard hymns. We encourage all Coptic Orthodox churches to use these hymns as a reference. The group follows 3 main principles in order of priority:

  1. All hymns will be adjusted to the original Coptic hymnology/melody as much as possible
  2. English pronunciation should not sound awkward
  3. If necessary, repetitive beats are removed if they cannot be smoothly adjusted to the English text
