The Complete Works of the Sunrise Service Hymns
Published - 20 September 2019

As part of our music education efforts, the AACCWD under the direction of Mr. Sevag Derderian has released a modern engraving of the Hymns of Sunrise Services of the Armenian Holy Church. This engraving features the 1957 harmonized works of W. Sarxian, English translation by the late Abp. Tiran Nersoyan. The original publication was produced by the late Patriarch His Beatitude Torkom Manoogian. 

My Dear Faithful: I would like to present you with a modern engraving of the Sunrise Service Music as originally harmonized by the late W. Sarxian.

You will find individual vocal parts with score and mp3 audio for your own listening and rehearsal purposes. I would like to thank Mr. Gegham Mughnetsyan for his arduous transcription of the Armenian text. Further, I would like to thank our Primate Abp. Derderian, Diocesan clergy and church choir members for their diligent support and patience as we completed this historic project.

I hereby dedicate this new publication to the children of our Diocese and our Armenian Apostolic Church. — Sevag Derderian (20/September/2019)
