“Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent”. The Holy Saturday Hymn For The Great Entrance.

This Article, by Gregory Dipippo, is taken from, and can be read in full, at

"Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence."
Да молчит - Сретенский монастырь.
Хор Сретенского Монастыря - Да молчит всякая плоть (Прот. П. Турчанинов).

This ancient Hymn was borrowed by The Byzantine Rite from The Liturgy of Saint James, and is sung at The Great Entrance, in place of The Cherubic Hymn, when The Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great is Celebrated on the morning of Holy Saturday.

This particularly impressive Old Church Slavonic version is sung by the Choir of The Sretensky Monastery in Moscow, Russia.
