PMR - Chanter's Resources (separate from Choir/Choral)
« on: March 20, 2008, 09:27:38 PM »
See: "An experiment - Parish Ministry Resource threads" for more info - http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,15087.0.html

For Chanter's information, resources, and materials (and the like) for chanters of all traditions (i.e. Greek/Antiochian, Slavic/Russian, and WR).
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Nice thread. I'm a chanter in training I guess. I've learned the Byzantine notation music and I'm still working on improving my voice skills and reading music better. I'll post a few chant links.

For those into Byzantine chant, St. Anthony's Monastery is the best. They have translated a ton of hymns in Western and Byzantine style notation.

Here is a handy PDF file. It is a book of exercises in learning Byzantine notation. This helped me a lot.

Holy Cross Hermitage also has a nice library of Russian style chant music.

For some Carpatho-Rusyn music (much of which could easily be used in your OCA parish as well)
visit
http://www.saintmichaels.info/music/
Lots of music ready for use.  Props to their Cantor, Michael Duke for an excellent resource of music!

If you're looking for some "congregational singing" you may want to look at this page as there is plenty of it there.
It's catchy and simple to sing, for the choir and the congregation... and pretty at the same time! 

I bring this up in this thread because Prostopinije a.k.a. Carpatho-Russian/Rusyn Plain Chant is indeed chanted.

serb1389,

I'm not sure if that information is still valid.  John now lives in the Sacramento area.  This is his website:

I just realized - his own website is out of date.  He told me himself recently that he lives in Sacramento is going to a parish there.

You should put up the links for Ioannis Triantafilou's websites that have Mr. Ketsetzis' stuff... I don't seem to have them, but I might dig them up myself.

Xristos Anesti!

Does anyone know where I can find the music for the funeral in Byzantine notation in English?  I'm pretty desperate...

Thanks!

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the service of supplications/paraklisis to Blessed Mother Xenia of Petersburg? 

Thanks!

I'm giving this a much-needed bump, to see if people have any more resources to add to the collection!

Thanks for including that.  I can't believe I forgot to put it here in the first place.  You should have mentioned that (a) all the books are in Greek, and (b) according to the site compiler, all the books are from Byzantine Music composers & theorists who are in the school of "Traditional Patriarchal."
