The Tagharan program is dedicated to the spiritual and folk branches of Armenian music. At the heart of the creation of the program is the idea of kinship of these two branches, which was first scientifically dealt with by Komitas. In the episodes of the program, we consider the relationship between Armenian folk and sacred music branches, present the stages of their historical development and their genre manifestations, describe the music component of folk and Church rites, reflect on the most important works of Church singing art as well as discuss actual problems of Armenian medieval studies and folklore with specialists.
The episode presents the sharakan of the 7th century Armenian Catholicos Komitas Aghtsetsi. It is dedicated to the holy virgins and martyrs St. Hripsime and her companions. The 36 stanzas of this sharakan start with the letters of the Armenian alphabet.
