HT Orthocuban, an Appalachian Orthodox Paschal hymn (the troparion)

http://www.orthocuban.com/2015/07/appalachian-orthodox-paschal-hymn/

an Appalachian musical style for the troparion, you know the words, right? 
Well, if you don't:

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling down death by death
and upon those in the tombs bestowing life

Follow the link and watch the video. Think of it as a shape-note troparion and that'll give you an idea of what it sounds like.
