Coptic Orthodox Liturgical Chant & Hymnody
The Ragheb Moftah Collection at the Library of Congress
Books and Articles Gallery
Books, chapters from books, or articles from periodicals having to do with Copts and Coptic music are featured in this Gallery. Ethnographic books by the famous Egyptologist, Edward William Lane, and S.H. Leeder, are reproduced in part or entirely. Rites, Services and Offices of the Coptic liturgy by Evetts, Bute, and Woolley were digitized in their entirety. A chapter on Coptic chant by Fétis from his Histoire Générale de la Musique is offered in a translation by Maryvonne Mavroukakis. Finally, two sources on Newlandsmith – his autobiographical Minstrel Friar, and a biographical article by an unknown author – offer insights into his larger-than-life personality.
