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.

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).
