What service book for the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom would you all recommend?.

Whichever they use at your parish.

How is the one put out by Holy Cross Press. It apparently includes the Sunday readings as well.

NewByz has released a pdf of a complete Divine Liturgy for choirs and chanters. It's quite impressive (it's a big download, by the way).

Mark (rwprof) passed into eternal life on Jan 7, 2010.  May his memory be eternal!

The Holy Cross Press service book, indicated in Reply #3 above, is most popularly used in GOAA parishes, from my experience in the Pittsburgh Metropolis.

I just wanted to mention by personal and sentimental favorite, because it was given to me as a gift by the presiding priest of the parish in which I graduated from Sunday School, on the occasion of my graduation, originally published in 1968 (Greek and English), black and red ink, w/some pictures; compiled by Fr. George L. Papadeas.  It includes a concise and thorough explanation of the Liturgy; a list of Dismissal Hymns; Hymns from the Liturgy with western notation; and a list of Epistle and Gospel periscopes.  It's comfortable to carry by hand. The English translation is traditional, but not Elizabethan English. Father George is best noted for the Holy Week Service Book, almost exclusively used in the GOAA.  He's among the Pomfret graduates of Holy Cross, maybe the first class if I'm not mistaken.  I think those Promfret grads were particularly well educated. He publishes under his own Patmos Press label and resides in Florida.

Thanks!. I ordered a copy from Patmos Press. Seems like a good one to study and participate with.
