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:

http://www.psaltika.ru/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=47&Itemid=100

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).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17kNNTuXLs8 - I know it's not typical byzantine chant, but I think it's really nice. Unfortunately, I don't understand, what they're singing in Romanian

Amazing chanting (in simplicity there's majesty) by an anonymous Greek nun:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXiW9X7-aW8
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.
Ἀλλ' ὁ φύσει σώματος δι' ἐμέ πάσχων, Ἀγαθέ Κύριε, Δόξα Σοι

Nativity Doxastikon When the time came for Your Advent on earth (plagal of 2nd) chanted by the same nun:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIuoaFKfWCI

Ὅτε καιρός, τῆς ἐπὶ γῆς παρουσίας σου, πρώτη ἀπογραφὴ τῇ οἰκουμένῃ ἐγένετο, τότε ἔμελλες τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἀπογράφεσθαι τὰ ὀνόματα, τῶν πιστευόντων τῷ τόκῳ σου· διὰ τοῦτο τὸ τοιοῦτον δόγμα, ὑπὸ Καίσαρος ἐξεφωνήθη· τῆς γὰρ αἰωνίου σου βασιλείας, τὸ ἄναρχον ἐκαινουργήθη. 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.

http://mtv.com.lb/Religious_Specials - lots of byzantine chant in Arabic - live recordings (broadcasts) from church services, concerts from Antiochian Orthodox and Greek Catholic (Melchite) Churches... There are also plenty of Maronite hymns and services.

Vesperal Doxastikon of the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, chanted in octoechos, "By the divine command" (chanted by the Thasyboulos Stanitsas Choir in Constantinople, live recording):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TfbcRMW55s#at=23

Mode 1st
Θεαρχίῳ νεύματι, πάντοθεν οἱ θεοφόροι Ἀπόστολοι, ὑπὸ νεφῶν μεταρσίως αἰρόμενοι.

Mode Plagal of 1st
Καταλαβόντες τὸ πανάχραντον, καὶ ζωαρχικόν σου σκῆνος, ἐξόχως ἠσπάζοντο.

Mode 2nd
Αἱ δὲ ὑπέρτατοι τῶν οὐρανῶν Δυνάμεις, σὺν τῷ οἰκείῳ Δεσπότῃ παραγενόμεναι.

Mode Plagal of 2nd
Τὸ θεοδόχον καὶ ἀκραιφνέστατον σῶμα προπέμπουσι, τῷ δέει κρατούμεναι, ὑπερκοσμίως δὲ προῴχοντο, καὶ ἀοράτως ἐβόων, ταῖς ἀνωτέραις ταξιαρχίαις· ἰδοὺ ἡ παντάνασσα θεόπαις παραγέγονεν.

Mode 3rd
Ἄρατε πύλας, καὶ ταύτην ὑπερκοσμίως ὑποδέξασθε, τὴν τοῦ ἀενάου φωτὸς Μητέρα.

Mode Grave
Διὰ ταύτης γὰρ ἡ παγγενὴς τῶν βροτῶν σωτηρία γέγονεν, ᾗ ἀτενίσαι οὐκ ἰσχύομεν, καὶ ταύτῃ ἄξιον γέρας ἀπονέμειν ἀδύνατον.

Mode 4th
Ταύτης γὰρ τὸ ὑπερβάλλον, ὑπερέχει πᾶσαν ἔννοιαν.

Mode Plagal of 4th
Διὸ ἄχραντε Θεοτόκε, ἀεὶ σὺν ζωηφόρῳ Βασιλεῖ, καὶ τόκῳ ζῶσα, πρέσβευε διηνεκῶς, περιφρουρῆσαι καὶ σῶσαι, ἀπὸ πάσης προσβολῆς ἐναντίας τὴν νεολαίαν σου· τὴν γὰρ σὴν προστασίαν κεκτήμεθα.

Mode 1st
Εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, ἀγλαοφανῶς μακαρίζοντες.

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

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.

ὁ τοῦ βάρους σὺ κλῆσιν εἰληφῶς φέρεις.
Ἧχον τὸν ἁπλοῦν τὸν βάρους ἐπώνυμον
ὁ τοὺς λογισμοὺς ἐν βοαῖς μισῶν φιλεῖ.
Ἀνδρῶν δὲ ἄσμα δευτερότριτε βρέμεις.
Ὧν ποικίλος δὲ τοὺς ἁπλούς ἔχεις φίλους.

Serbian Orthodox byzantine chant by the choir of st. John Damascen school
(very interesting pieces like troparion to st. John Damascene, Nativity Canon, psalms etc. - in each video there are a few pieces separated by a short talk about church singing)
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

Φρούρησον πανένδοξε, τὴν σὲ μεγαλύνουσαν πόλιν, ἀπὸ τῶν ἐναντίων προσβολῶν, παρρησίαν ὡς ἔχων, πρὸς Χριστὸν τόν σὲ δοξάσαντα.
Αοίδιμε Δημήτριε, φρούρησον την σε τιμῶσαν πόλιν, τους ἄνακτας συμμάχησον, την πόλιν σου στερέωσον, τους σε τιμῶντας εὐσεβῶς ἀοίδιμε Δημήτριε...
τε-ρι-ρεμ
...παρρησίαν ὡς ἔχων πρός Χριστόν τόν σὲ δοξάσαντα.
