I'm looking for a Byzantine Chant of Psalm 50 (51 LXX) chanted in English.

Can anyone help me?

Here are links to the four versions that I know exist on the web

Thank you Arimethea.  I however am very illiterate when it comes to reading music (which is something I wish to overcome someday when I have time).

Do you have an audio recording of some sort?  Or is it possible someone can record themselves with these versions?

Why do you need recordings? There is nothing really special about these melodies, they are very simple versions of the tones indicated.

If you go to the St. Anthony's Monastery website, they have audio that goes with the files (no words, just the tune).

So, I can wing it as long as I know the tone?

I'm simply trying to learn some Byzantine chants to accommodate for some Eastern Orthodox in a group I'm in charge of, who simply are very humble enough to join us in Coptic prayers.

Thank you Cleveland.  Do you know a free program that can play .mus files?

No, I'm not sure.

Thank you...

But, either I don't know how to work .mus files, or this program seems to have a hard time reading them.  So I'm still stuck with nothing.

God bless.

Oh never mind.  I didn't realize there was a free reader in Finale Notepad.  I just had to register my email.  That's all.

Thank you all for your help.  Much appreciated.
