Freely available recordings by native Greeks

Freely available recordings by native Greeks

Postby Jonathan Robie » June 13th, 2011, 8:19 am

I'm looking for freely available recordings of the Greek New Testament that are easy to follow, in either Restored Pronunciation or Modern Pronunciation. As far as I can tell, there is no complete set of the New Testament in Restored Pronunciation that is freely available on the Internet.

I found an entire Bible, including the Old Testament, here:

http://www.zontanonero.gr/Bible.html

I don't know what Greek text he is using.

Are there other recordings by native Greeks that cover the entire New Testament, and are freely available? Or good recordings in Restored Pronunciation that are freely available?

Hi, Jonathan

It's the Bambas Modern Greek version, which is close enough to the Koine to be intelligible. Thanks for finding this. It makes me think that complete recordings of the Koine OT may be out there somewhere, but the only ones I have been able to find are the ones read by Vasile Stancu. If anyone knows of any other ones let us know.

Does anyone know much about the text that she uses? Her James recording says that it is from the Stephanos 1550 version. I googled it and couldn't find much background information on it. There doesn't seem to be too many differences from the UBS edition, but I was just wondering how different it really is.

Actually it is quite different... Stephanus' Textus Receptus belongs somewhat to the Byzantine text-type. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textus_Receptus and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandrian_text-type may give a rough idea. Three editions can also be compared at http://www.crosswire.org/study/parallel ... HNU&add=TR. But it should not matter much for listening purposes. :)

This recording of the Gospel of Mark comes from Mount Athos, the monastery of Vatopedi, taped in 2008, and the reading is from the patriarchal (Antoniades) text - 1904

Very clear, nicely read. Thanks for this!
