I'm a newbie to this site ... the answer(s) to my question probably are posted several times below, but since I won't really have time to explore this page (and site!) for a few days yet, I'm hoping someone can give me some shortcuts ...
QUESTION: as a catechumen (and with my priest's blessing, also a choir member) I am struggling to learn the 8 tones. Can anyone suggest an online site where I can *listen* to the 8 basic tones (Slavonic, but as sung in the OCA) ... even download them to MP3, cell phone, etc.? If it matters, I sing baritone.
Again, I realize answers to this question may be posted here too ... so even a shortcut to the exact post would help. Meanwhile, I'll surf the net as I can, and eventually find time to explore this site. Thanks!
grace and peace,
jeremiah (p.s., Protestant clergy considering conversion, hence the catechumenate and related choir work)
