‘Amen, Hayr Sourb’ – Sacred

Originally denoted in the Khaz neumatic notation in the 13th century, the melody to this hymn has evolved over centuries. It has several contemporary versions, one of which is arranged by Makar Yekmalyan, found below. Dedicated to The Holy Trinity, this hymn is sung during the Divine Liturgy after The Intercessions and before Ter Voghormea (Kyrie Eleison).
