In honor of Sveti Jovan Krsna Slava (St. John the Baptist) / "We Magnify Thee, O Lifegiver Christ" by the Valaam Choir




In honor of this day, January 20th, which is the Serbian Orthodox Krsna Slava (Patron Saint's Day) of Sveti Jovan (St. John the Baptist), I'm sharing this beautiful Serbian Chant, We Magnify Thee, O Lifegiver Christ, sung by the St. Petersburg Valaam Metochion Choir at the St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Washington, D.C. in 2002.  Sveti Jovan was the Krsna Slava of my beloved maternal grandparents, Andja and Timotije, my Baka and Deka.

Enjoy.
