Description: The Cherubic Hymn is part of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy, the equivalent of the Western Mass. It is sung during the so-called "Great Entrance", whent the priest carries the gifts of bread and wine into the church from behind the iconostasis. The first stanzas are usually sung in a majestic, slow tempo. After the intercessions by the priest(s), the choir responds with "Amin" and takes the final verse at a much quicker pace.
