Rassem is the Protopsaltis of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America, an adjunct professor/lecturer of Byzantine Chant at Holy Cross and St. Vladimir's Seminaries, as well as a good friend.

An excellent bio with personal anecdotes, published in the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs, can be accessed here.

A video of Rassem chanting one of my compositions can be found here. Ample other videos can also be found on YouTube.

Why does it here say "Ο Αεἰμνηστος Πρωτοψἀλτης" ?

I think that, for the person that uploaded the video, Greek was a second language. So they probably misunderstood the meaning of the word Αεἰμνηστος. Rassem is definitely among the living!
