The members of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in East Meadow, New York presented a Christmas concert on December 4. It was the fifty-third year the parish had observed this festive chorale.

From the article:
Quote
"Our parish choir carries on a centuries old tradition in the Orthodox Church of trained singers leading the faithful in the responses at all divine services," Father Martin Kraus, pastor of Holy Trinity, said in the program for the evening. "The choir uses a mixture of ancient and modern chant melodies to proclaim the texts."

By modern chant, he means after the 4th century, right?

Well, there's John Tavener's work from the 20th century and Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev's) from the 21st.   laugh

The totally beautiful music which we use for the Panikhida is Pyotr Spassky's who wrote it in the 1920s or 1930s in Paris.  People assume it is ancient but it is modern.   And our choir loves to sing Chesnokov's Liturgy, composed in the early 1900s.
