The Sacrament of the Eucharist was instituted by Christ Himself during the Last Supper and it continuous to nourish and unite the believers to Christ in every liturgy till today.
The Taste & See Album features a collection of songs that were composed and recorded by a group of talented young artists about this sacrament. Each song presents the teaching of the Orthodox Church about the sacrament of the Eucharist combined with the artist’s deep personal experiences in practicing this sacrament throughout their life.
A very important aspect of a song is its educational value that it offers to listeners. In other words the lyrics must present a substantial theological teaching about the Orthodox Church teaching and theology. Asaph Tunes’ role is to encourage and present the work of these artists to the best quality and provide it in the most common media available.
St Cyril teaches that we are united with Christ when we receive his body and blood:
“He who receives Communion is made holy and Divinized in soul and body in the same way that water, set over a fire, becomes boiling… Communion works like yeast that has been mixed into dough so that it leavens the whole mass; …Just as by melting two candles together you get one piece of wax, so, I think, one who receives the Flesh and Blood of Jesus is fused together with Him by this Communion, and the soul finds that he is in Christ and Christ is in him” – Cyril of Alexandria
