This site is great, because it has (amongst its files) some of the older and more traditional books for Chanting in the Patriarchal Style.

http://graeca.canto.ru/upload/MontrealPsaltiki/

The guy who runs the site sounds like a terrific Cantor, and is a student of a very traditional Cantor himself.

This collection of links is likely a bit broader in scope than cleveland intended with this thread - and my apologies for that. It's the remains of a resource thread on chant that I had created at the old CAF forum, but that regretably disappeared in the effort to rewrite history over there. I have not checked the links of late (would have, but I had to convert the coding to post it and that took longer than I expected), so I'm hopeful that most remain good. (Also, please excuse what may sound a bit basic and patronizing in the tone of the opening text - it was written for the benefit of an audience that would have included many unfamiliar with our liturgical music heritage, tradition, and style, not for one of primarily Eastern and Oriental Christians.)

A variety of musical forms are used in the Eastern & Oriental Churches.

Most Eastern and Oriental Churches, Catholic and Orthodox, perform liturgical music a capella.  As most of these Churches have their origins within an ethno-cultural framework, the peculiar form that each uses tends to be rooted in the culture and heritage from which its faithful originally came. Thus, Byzantines of the Greek Tradition (e.g., Albanians) utilize a different style than will Byzantines of the Slav Tradition (e.g. Ruthenians); the same is true of Antiochene Churches of East Syriac versus West Syriac Traditions.

Even within Traditions, there are differences, e.g. between Ruthenians and Ukrainians, both Byzantine Slavic Churches; prostopinije is used most often by the former, while kyevan chant is most used by the latter.

Except in instances where a Church has been influenced by external liturgical praxis (e.g., latinization), few if any differences should be observable between the musical forms used in Catholic or Orthodox Churches from the same heritage.

Arabic chant, used in Melkite Catholic and Antiochene Orthodox Churches has similarities to Islamic vocalizations, the latter having borrowed from the pre-existing Arabic Christian forms. The vocalization style used in Christ's time is likely most closely approximated by the Aramaic and Syriac chant of Maronites, Syriac Catholics and Orthodox, and Chaldean Catholics and their Assyrian counterparts, as well as the styles of Hebrew chant preserved by Jews in their worship. See Jewish Liturgical Music

For audio clips of Eastern and Oriental liturgical music, visit these:

Eastern Catholic Liturgical Hymns is a diverse collection of liturgical texts and hymns from a variety of Eastern Catholic Churches, gathered by Donald Wyckoff (who has recently added traditional Latin Rite music to the site). Most of the material here is, unfortunately, instrumental rather than in its traditional a capella presentation, but it does offer a sense of the hymnody. Be patient, as the site is slow to load.

Hymns from the Byzantine Liturgical Tradition is a wonderful range of music from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North America's beautiful website.

Choir Chant of the Byzantine Slovak Catholic Church was recorded by a Byzantine Slovak Catholic parish in Bratislavia.

Byzantine Melkite Liturgical Chant is offered at the site of the Melkite Greek-Catholic Eparchy of Australia. The page is, unfortunately, written in Arabic, which I can neither read nor speak. The links, however, are obvious - click on any of them to listen.

Plainchant in the form of Ruthenian prostopinije is beautifully presented at the website of the American Carpatho-Rusyn Orthodox Diocese.

Georgian Chant (for which I used to have a great link, alas no longer functional) is reportedly the oldest Byzantine liturgical form. Regretably, to the best of my knowledge, there are presently no working chant links available on-line for this form. You can, however, hear an audio file of a traditional instrumental rendition of Shen Kar Venati - the Cherubic Hymn

Coptic Hymnody for the Feast of the Resurrection was recorded by the Higher Institute of Coptic Studies.

Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Hymns were recorded by St. Mary's Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Church in Los Angeles.

The Anaphora of Addai & Mari is the Mystery of the Eucharist from the Holy Liturgy of the Assyrian Church of the East, chanted in Classical Eddessan Syriac. This Anaphora is unique among those of the Apostolic Churches in that it recites no explicit narrative of the Words of Eucharistic Institution.

Maronite Music on the old (but presently still available) website of Saint Jude Maronite Catholic parish in Orlando, FL (the Maronite Liturgical Chant recorded by the parish choir appears to no longer be available on the site - these are audio clips from a recording by a Maronite nun)

Podoben, a site belonging to Saint Nicholas OCA Cathedral in Washington (DC), is entirely devoted to Eastern Christian music.

Mixed Liturgical Chants, also at Saint Nicholas' site, offers a fascinating array of liturgical midis, primarily, but not entirely, from the Byzantine Slav traditions - including several (Serb, Bulgarian, and Ukrainian) for which I hadn't posted links above.

Russian Old Believer Znamenny Chant is an isolated link from a site offering a broad selection of Russian Old Believer chant. The main site is, unfortunately in Russian, making it difficult (let's say impossible) for linguistically challenged Russophiles like myself to navigate.

Russian Liturgical Music is a presentation of Saint Michael's Russian Greek-Catholic Church in New York City.

Orthodox Music Downloads are offered at Ivan Moody's deservedly renowned UK site.

Armenian Liturgical Chant can be sampled by clicking on any of the album covers.

Many years,

Neil

ok- at a quick check, the Maronite, Ethiopian, and Georgian links are the only inoperative ones. I'll try and find substitutes for them, but I don't have much hope for the Georgian

Instead of Downloading the Video Clips with the Hymns ,Just record The songs, or Hymns  With the Free Internet Radio recorder  Mp-3  My Mp-3 in wave or Mp-3 files...They also have a payed version of the recorder ..The free one is complete ,works well for me..The payed version  gives more recording formats one can record in ....

Russian nuns performin byzantine chant. I've known their recordings for years, but here is something quite new:
http://www.sestry.ru/church/content/masterskie/singing/sing/disk6 - Paschal chant mostly in Church Slavonic and some in Greek, but this time they based on the works of Constantine Papayanis, so you can notice some difference in chanting of Paschal Canon in comparison with this (sung also by these nuns and based on byzantine melodies too).

I can easily say it's one of the best byzantine chanting in Church Slavonic I've ever heard.

Very nice thread here.

This Church in Cyprus has a particularly useful website for anyone wanting more material about Byzantine chant in Greek or English.
Its english translations complement those of Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Boston and Saint Antony Monastery of Arizona:

A Russian byzantine choir (it's quite rare, isn't it?) "Psaltika" from Moscow. I recommend especially the first folder (Рождественские песнопения) and the first hymn of it as there are very few recordings of Nativity Canon in Church Slavonic sung in byzantine way. The last folder is also very nice as it contains all 8 Sunday troparions (I mean, all 8 tones).

Idiomelon (Samoglasen) of the Matins of Holy and Great Friday (palgal of 4th mode)
Already the pen of sentence is being dipped in ink

Ἤδη βάπτεται κάλαμος ἀποφάσεως παρά κριτῶν ἀδίκων, καὶ Ἰησούς δικάζεται καὶ κατακρίνεται Σταυρῷ.
Καὶ πάσχει ἡ κτίσις ἐν Σταυρῷ καθορῶσα τὸν Κύριον.

Διὸ σοι προσφέρομεν καὶ ἡμεῖς, ὑπὲρ τήν χρηματικὴν φορολογίαν, ὀρθοδόξου πλουτισμὸν θεολογίας, τῷ Θεῷ καὶ Σωτῆρι τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν

This is wonderful.  I absolutely love Byzantine chant in Arabic. There's a great online radio station, Al Orthodoxiya, which has Byzantine chant mostly in Arabic.

Doxastikon of the Praises for the feast of St. George Spring is here (composition of Petros Philanthides) chanted by a choir of Thessalonian chanters (plagal of 1st):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1F2U0OSM24

Ἀνέτειλε τὸ ἔαρ, δεῦτε εὐωχηθῶμεν, ἐξέλαμψεν ἡ Ἀνάστασις Χριστοῦ, δεῦτε εὐφρανθῶμεν ἡ τοῦ Ἀθλοφόρου μνήμη, τοὺς πιστοὺς φαιδρύνουσα ἀνεδείχθη· διὸ φιλέορτοι, δεῦτε μυστικῶς αὐτὴν πανηγυρίσωμεν· οὗτος γὰρ ὡς καλὸς στρατιώτης, ἠνδρίσατο κατὰ τῶν τυράννων, καὶ τούτους κατῄσχυνε, μιμητὴς γενόμενος τοῦ πάθους τοῦ Σωτῆρος Χριστοῦ, οὐκ ἠλέησε τὸ σκεῦος τὸ πήλινον τὸ ἑαυτοῦ, ἀλλὰ γυμνὸν ἀνεχάλκευσεν, ἐν βασάνοις αὐτὸ προσαμειβόμενος, αὐτῷ βοήσωμεν· Ἀθλοφόρε ἱκέτευε, εἰς τὸ σωθῆναι τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

Psalm 102 (Bless the Lord, O my soul) chanted according to the Hagiorite tradition (plagal of 4th) by a choir of fresher students of the Aristotelian Uni of Thessaloniki:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SC0zFbfRNk

Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τόν Κύριον, Εὐλογητός εἶ Κύριε.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τὸν Κύριον καί, πάντα τὰ ἐντός μου, τὸ ὄνομα τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ·.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου, τὸν Κύριον καὶ μὴ ἐπιλανθάνου πάσας τὰς ἀνταποδόσεις αὐτοῦ·
τὸν εὐιλατεύοντα πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας σου, τὸν ἰώμενον πάσας τὰς νόσους σου·
τὸν λυτρούμενον ἐκ φθορᾶς τὴν ζωήν σου, τὸν στεφανοῦντά σε ἐν ἐλέει καὶ οἰκτιρμοῖς·
τὸν ἐμπιπλῶντα ἐν ἀγαθοῖς τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν σου, ἀνακαινισθήσεται ὡς ἀετοῦ ἡ νεότης σου.
Ποιῶν ἐλεημοσύνας ὁ Κύριος καὶ κρῖμα πᾶσι τοῖς ἀδικουμένοις.
'Eγνώρισε τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ τῷ Μωυσῇ, τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὰ θελήματα αὐτοῦ.
Οἰκτίρμων καὶ ἐλεήμων ὁ Κύριος, μακρόθυμος καὶ πολυέλεος· οὐκ εἰς τέλος ὀργισθήσεται, οὐδὲ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα μηνιεῖ·
οὐ κατὰ τὰς ἀνομίας ἡμῶν ἐποίησεν ἡμῖν, οὐδὲ κατὰ τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν ἀνταπέδωκεν ἡμῖν
ὅτι κατὰ τὸ ὕψος τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἐκραταίωσε Κύριος τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν·
καθόσον ἀπέχουσιν ἀνατολαὶ ἀπὸ δυσμῶν, ἐμάκρυνεν ἀφ᾿ ἡμῶν τὰς ἀνομίας ἡμῶν.
Καθὼς οἰκτείρει πατὴρ υἱούς, ᾠκτείρησε Κύριος τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἔγνω τὸ πλάσμα ἡμῶν, ἐμνήσθη ὅτι χοῦς ἐσμεν.
ἄνθρωπος, ὡσεὶ χόρτος αἱ ἡμέραι αὐτοῦ· ὡσεὶ ἄνθος τοῦ ἀγροῦ, οὕτως ἐξανθήσει·
ὅτι πνεῦμα διῆλθεν ἐν αὐτῷ, καὶ οὐχ ὑπάρξει καὶ οὐκ ἐπιγνώσεται ἔτι τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ.
Τὸ δὲ ἔλεος τοῦ Κυρίου ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος ἐπὶ τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν
καὶ ἡ δικαιοσύνη αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ υἱοῖς υἱῶν τοῖς φυλάσσουσι τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ καὶ μεμνημένοις τῶν ἐντολῶν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ποιῆσαι αὐτάς.
Κύριος ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἡτοίμασε τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ πάντων δεσπόζει.
Εὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πάντες οἱ ἄγγελοι αὐτοῦ, δυνατοὶ ἰσχύϊ ποιοῦντες τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς φωνῆς τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ.
Εὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πᾶσαι αἱ δυνάμεις αὐτοῦ, λειτουργοὶ αὐτοῦ  οἱ ποιοῦντες τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ.
Eὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ, ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ τῆς δεσποτείας αὐτοῦ.
Eὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου, τὸν Κύριον.
Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ Νῦν καὶ ἀεί καί εἰς τούς αἰώνας τῶν αἰώνων Ἀμήν.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τὸν Κύριον καί, πάντα τὰ ἐντός μου, τὸ ὄνομα τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ.
Εὐλογητός εἶ Κύριε.

The Byzantine Music ensemble "En Chordais" (Ἐν Xορδαῖς) chant the dogmatic theotokion (actually it's not the whole hymn) The universal glory composed by a famous Ottoman-Greek composer of secular music (18th c.), Zaharya Hanende (Ζαχαρίας ὁ χανεδές, Zechariah the melodist) in Mode 1st:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDxfORfD5-s

Τήν παγκόσμιον δόξαν,
τήν ἐξ ἀνθρώπων σπαρεῖσαν,
καί τόν Δεσπότην τεκοῦσαν,
τήν ἐπουράνιον πύλην,
ὑμνήσωμεν Μαρίαν τήν Παρθένον,
τῶν Ἀσωμάτων τό ἆσμα,
καί τῶν πιστῶν τό ἐγκαλλώπισμα ὑμνήσωμεν

If you're interested on Hanende's secular compositions (performed by "En Chordais"):

Emmanuel Hadzimarkos (who is regarded one of the sweetest voices and best chanters of Byzantine music in modern Greece, 1927-2013) chants verses from The Great Doxology in Mode 2nd (Iakovos the Protopsaltis) in 1959 (live recording). His tempo is impeccable:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mROGVrPiXg

Δόξα Σοι τῷ δείξαντι τὸ φῶς
Δόξα ἐν ὑψίστοις Θεῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία
Κύριε Βασιλεῦ, ἐπουράνιε Θεέ, Πάτερ παντοκράτορ, Κύριε Υἱὲ μονογενές, Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, καὶ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα
Πρόσδεξαι τὴν δέησιν ἡμῶν, ὁ καθήμενος ἐν δεξιᾷ τοῦ Πατρός, καὶ ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς
Καθ' ἑκάστην ἡμέραν εὐλογήσω σε, καὶ αἰνέσω τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος
Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, ὁ Θεὸς τῶν Πατέρων ἡμῶν, καὶ αἰνετὸν καὶ δεδοξασμένον τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας. Ἀμήν
Κύριε, πρὸς σὲ κατέφυγον· δίδαξόν με τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸ θέλημά σου, ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ Θεός μου.

Does Serbian Chant goes here or in Slavic thread? I mean, Bulgarians, Macedonians and Serbs are Slavs, but we use variants of Byzantine Chant?

On this site you have detailed analysis of Serbian Chant, with notes, partitures, and instructions. Also there are examples of all melodies in Churhc Slavonic and English. :) Good work.

Βηθλεὲμ ἑτοιμάζου· εὐτρεπιζέσθω ἡ φάτνη· τὸ Σπήλαιον δεχέσθω, ἡ ἀλήθεια ἦλθεν· ἡ σκιὰ παρέδραμε· καὶ Θεὸς ἀνθρώποις, ἐκ Παρθένου πεφανέρωται, μορφωθείς τὸ καθ' ἡμᾶς, καὶ θεώσας τὸ πρόσλημμα. Διὸ Ἀδὰμ ἀνανεοῦται σὺν τῇ Εὔᾳ, κράζοντες· Ἐπὶ γῆς εὐδοκία ἐπεφάνη, σῶσαι τὸ γένος ἡμῶν.

Bethlehem, make ready, let the manger be beautifully adorned; cave, receive, the Truth is come! The shadow has passed away, and God has appeared to men out of the Virgin, having been formed like us and deifying the flesh. Wherefore, Adam is renewed with Eve, crying out: Goodwill has appeared on earth to save our race.

Mode Pl. 4th
Δόξα... Καὶ νῦν...
Τάδε λέγει Ἰωσὴφ πρὸς τὴν Παρθένον· Μαρία, τὶ τὸ δρᾶμα τοῦτο, ὃ ἐν σοὶ τεθέαμαι; ἀπορῶ καὶ ἐξίσταμαι, καὶ τὸν νοῦν καταπλήττομαι! Λάθρα τοίνυν ἀπ' ἐμοῦ, γενοῦ ἐν τάχει. Μαρία, τὶ τὸ δρᾶμα τοῦτο, ὃ ἐν σοὶ τεθέαμαι; ἀντὶ τιμῆς αἰσχύνην, ἀντ' εὐφροσύνης, τὴν λύπην, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπαινεῖσθαι, τὸν ψόγον μοι προσήγαγες. Οὐκ ἔτι φέρω λοιπόν, τὸ ὄνειδος ἀνθρώπων· ὑπὸ γὰρ Ἱερέων ἐκ τοῦ ναοῦ, ὡς ἄμεμπτον Κυρίου σὲ παρέλαβον· καὶ τὶ τὸ ὁρώμενον;

Glory...Now and ever...
Thus spoke Joseph to the Virgin: "Mary, what is this doing that I behold in you? I am perplexed and astonished, and my mind is horrified! Therefore, secretly and swiftly be gone from me. Mary, what is this doing that I see in you? Instead of honor, shame; instead of gladness, sorrow; instead of praise, you have brought me reproof. No longer shall I bear the reproach of men, for from the priests, out of the temple of the Lord, I have taken you as one who is blameless; and what does this appear to be?"

Poem by St. Sophronios Patriarch of Jerusalem
Οὗτος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, οὐ λογισθήσεται ἕτερος πρὸς αὐτόν, ὁ τεχθεὶς ἐκ Παρθένου, καὶ τοῖς ἀνθρώποις συναναστραφείς. Φάτνῃ πενιχρᾷ Υἱὸς μονογενής, κείμενος ὁρᾶται βροτός· καὶ σπαργάνοις πλέκεται, ὁ τῆς δόξης Κύριος, καὶ Μάγους ἀστὴρ μηνύει, εἰς αὐτοῦ προσκύνησιν, καὶ ἡμεῖς μελῳδοῦμεν·Τριὰς Ἁγία, σῶσον τὰς ψυχὰς ἠμών.

This is our God, none other can be compared to Him; it is He Who was born of the Virgin and dwelt among men. Laid in a poor manger, the only-begotten Son appeared as mortal man, and the Lord of glory is wrapped in swaddling clothes. The star calls the Magi to His adoration. Let us also chant: Holy Trinity, save our souls.

Mode 3rd
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων ἀμήν
Ἰωσήφ, εἰπὲ ἡμῖν, πῶς ἐκ τὼν ἁγίων ἣν παρέλαβες Κόρην, ἔγκυον φέρεις ἐν Βηθλεέμ; Ἐγὼ φησι, τοὺς Προφήτας ἐρευνήσας, καὶ χρηματισθεὶς ὑπὸ Ἀγγέλου, πέπεισμαι, ὅτι Θεὸν γεννήσει ἡ Μαρία ἀνερμηνεύτως· οὗ εἰς προσκύνησιν, Μάγοι ἐξ Ἀνατολῶν ἥξουσι, σὺν δώροις τιμίοις λατρεύοντες. Ὁ σαρκωθεὶς δι' ἡμᾶς, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.

Glory to the Father nad to the Son and the Holy Spirit
Now and ever and to the ages of ages amen
Tell us, Joseph, how is it that you bring to Bethlehem, great with Child, the Maiden whom you have taken from the sanctuary? "I have searched the prophets," said he, "and have received tidings from an angel, and I am persuaded that Mary shall ineffably give birth to God, Whom Magi from the East shall come to worship, doing homage with precious gifts." Lord, Who was incarnate for our sake, glory to You.

Verses from Psalm 136, Μode 3rd (after Khourmouzios the archiver), chanted by the Choir of the Pancypriot Union of Church Chanters:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSGnGVt44cw
Επί τῶν ποταμῶν Βαβυλῶνος ἐκεῖ ἐκαθίσαμεν καὶ ἐκλαύσαμεν ἐν τῷ μνησθῆναι ἡμᾶς τῆς Σιών. Ἀλληλούια.
Ἐπὶ ταῖς ἰτέαις ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ἐκρεμάσαμεν τὰ ὄργανα ἡμῶν· Ἀλληλούια.
Πῶς ᾄσωμεν τὴν ᾠδὴν Κυρίου ἐπὶ γῆς ἀλλοτρίας; Ἀλληλούια.
Ἐὰν ἐπιλάθωμαί σου, ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ἐπιλησθείη ἡ δεξιά μου· Ἀλληλούια.
Κολληθείη ἡ γλῶσσά μου τῷ λάρυγγί μου, ἐὰν μή σου μνησθῶ, Ἀλληλούια.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. Alleluia.
We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it. Alleluia.
How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land? Alleluia.
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill. Alleluia.
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, Alleluia.

Verses from the same psalm, chanted by the Nun Mariam, Mode 3rd:

Κολληθείη ἡ γλῶσσά μου τῷ λάρυγγί μου, ἐὰν μή σου μνησθῶ, Ἀλληλούια.
Ἐὰν μὴ προανατάξωμαι τὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ὡς ἐν ἀρχῇ τῆς εὐφροσύνης μου, Ἀλληλούια.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. Alleluia.
We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it. Alleluia.
How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land? Alleluia.
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, Alleluia.
If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy, Alleluia.
