Dear in Christ,

St Anthony's Monastery recently updated their liturgy project:

http://stanthonysmonastery.org/music/Index.html

Now they have Vespers and the Divine Liturgies, in English (either Traditional or "Modern") in both Western notation (booo!) and Byzantine notation (yea!!!!!)  I think this is GREAT!

It's a great, very useful reference, and they chose some great pieces of music to use.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

This really is a great work, and I'm glad it's available.

However, for folks like me who can't carry a tune in a sack, it's one more thing for parishioners to beat me over the head with while saying "Why can't you sound like this, Father?..."  :-\

Well, that's why God made and provides His Church with so many chanters and other folks musically inclined!

Even when one can normally carry a tune, it still doesn't guarantee you'll sound good (as your poor metropolitan experienced when the ohio trio showed up for your ordination).
