Our Mission Statement:

The mission of the Department of Sacred Music is to provide leadership to the parishes of the Archdiocese, drawing from the talents of the faithful in order to serve in these ways: publishing music, organizing workshops and seminars, building strong ties of communication throughout the Archdiocese, supporting the work of mission parishes, and providing a positive influence towards the creation of new works of liturgical music for the glory of God and the Holy Orthodox Faith.

Our Department guides our parishes in all areas concerning liturgical music. We have much information here for you and we update these resources regularly. This Sacred Music webpage makes it easy to locate and download the necessary sheet music (in PDF format) for feasts and seasons of the Orthodox liturgical year.  Visit this web page often for news and updates as the selection of files for download continues to expand.

DO YOU NEED THE KAZAN MENAION?

As many of you may know, the Kazan Byzantine Menaion Project is out of print, and has been for some time. We have been working on proofing the computerized version, and we now have September, October, November, and December completed. If you are in need of this music, please email me, Christopher Holwey, by clicking on the email link on the right column of this website. We're still working out the specifics, but I'd like to know how many of you are in need of this. Thanks.

 

DID YOU KNOW ...

...that we have all the music you need for Ss. Peter and Paul? Go to www.antiochian.org/music/library, and scroll down to section S, for Ss. Peter and Paul. 

Happy Feast of our blessed Antiochian Saints.

 

If you can't find something, please let us know by emailing Christopher Holwey (the link is in the right column).
