Hi everyone, its been a while since I've been on here, but can anyone tell me where I can find audio sources of greek/english wedding hymns chanted? I'm chanting at my friends wedding tomorrow and I'm realizing that his priest would want me to do more chanting than the priest I usually chant for in my city.

ie. Ive never had to chant before the Procesional Psalm (doxa si kyrie/glory to you o Lord)

Also, I have no clue how the Alleluia (after the epistle) with verse should sound

If anyone could offer me links or hints that would be awesome! I wish someone would put up the hymn of the wedding service on youtube or available for mp3. I know there is a greek webiste that has the menaion with mp3 chanting for each day of the year, I wonder if it would also have the wedding service...

Sadly, the Fr Leo Schafe site (analogion.gr/glt) doesn't have the audio; however, St Anthony's Monastery does.

Check out http://stanthonysmonastery.org/music/Wedding.htm (in Byzantine or Staff notation).

- Processional Psalm - Verses are intoned, with 'Glory to You' being a short one (Eirmologic speed).  The one I'm familiar with is 13 beats long (over 10 syllables), so they're done fairly briskly (like a troparion speed).

- The Alleluia should sound like an 'Alleluia' after the Epistle in the Liturgy - not drawn out at all.

Hope this helps!

I've chanted the Alleluia in either a plagal tone 1 or plagal tone 4 (chanted from Ni). Either are acceptable.  Let me see if I can get you some audio from a wedding that I chanted this last weekend.
