No, but I'd like to.  Funny, as I had been looking at this about two weeks ago.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Why is it so expensive, though?
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Going to Holy Trinity Seminary's (ROCOR) Summer School of Liturgial Music is $1200...it's kind of a steal.  I remember seeing some explanations on Youtube about the 8 tones, but they weren't very helpful, but, hey, it's free.

Also, the OCA has tutorials, but I don't know how to read music, so their explanations go over my head.

It's a big box, but objectively 8 bucks per CD is not expensive at all.

For me, I'd liken it to learning a new language.  Learning a new language can be far more expensive.

Yeah, that's true. They gotta make a profit, too.
