Unfading Rose (Ρόδον τό Ἀμάραντον) is a youth choir dedicated to making Byzantine music available in Greek and English to families.
Our desire, as a choir, is to make the major hymns of the Church, in Greek and in English, accessible to your family. In our homes is where we live most of our lives and where our souls take shape as we work through the daily struggles of life. With all the demands on our time, and challenges of family life, it is easy to forget God's place in the center of our homes. When Church becomes a place we visit once a week, with foreign sights, sounds, and smells then, slowly, God becomes a foreigner, disconnected from real family life. As we bring God into our homes, through the prayers, hymns, images, and practices of the Church, we nurture a culture in our homes where God is real and active.
The more we bring the hymns of the Church into our daily lives in the home, singing them at meal times, prayer times, feast days, and bedtimes, the more we feel at home at Church and experience the Church as our home. It is our hope that our efforts will assist you in bringing the hymns we hear in Church into your homes and your hearts and bringing your family closer to God.
