Our Mission Statement:

The Department of Sacred Music of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North
America guides chanters, choirs and congregations to musical excellence in worship for the
glory of God.

 

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.
