Christ the Saviour Cathedral

Not long after the beginning of my entrance to the blogosphere, I posted a link to some video clips showing the desecration and demolition of Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow, the use of the site during the intervening years and the rebuilding of the cathedral. There were also videos of the 5+hour service of reconsecration of the cathedral and the glorification of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia. The link to the original post is in the title of this one.

They were extremely moving videos. I shed a tear at the scene of the icons burning and was filled with excitement when I saw the bishops building the new altar.

Sadly, the videos no longer seem to work. I would very much like to download them but I don't know how to contact the administrators of the website, especially as the main site is actually in Russian. Does anybody know how I might contact them or where else I may be able to get my hands on the videos? If so, and you would let me know, I should be very grateful.

Thank you.

I know the deacon Alexandr in that cathedral, who is responsible for the site. I will contact him about the availability of the videos.

Oh thank you so much! That would be a great help. There is an e-mail link for me at the right-hand side of this blog if you or he would prefer to contact me privately.

Thank you, again.
Michael :-)

This site has videos(sorry no dvds) of this story. Actually 3. An older
one just about the history & destruction, a newer one about the rebuilding & dedication and a 2 tape
set of the actual dedication service and liturgy.
They have other Orthodox videos. I own several and are of good quality.
They also have videos in Russian.
