Consecration of St. Volodymyr Cathedral, NYC
Audio recording of the Orthodox Rite of Consecration of a Church, officiated by Metropolitan Ioan and Archbishop Mstyslav. It is followed by the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. There may have been two choirs present, one of which would certainly have been conducted by Vasyl' Zavitnevych.
St. Volodymyr Cathedral is on 82nd Street in Manhattan, and continues to function as one of the episcopal cathedrals of the Eastern Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA.
