Music Page

At our monastery, we sing music from various Orthodox Traditions. This page is a work in progress and will include some liturgical hymns that are difficult to find elsewhere, including hymns from the Romanian roots of our monastery and "special melodies" (Podobni / Prosomia) for Feast Days, as well as a few original compositions (either in text or melody). We offer these hymns to hopefully enhance your appreciation for the hymnography of the Church throughout all the different chant traditions. Most of the Liturgical Text is taken from the translations provided by the Orthodox Church in America or the Romanian Episcopate

This page is in progress. Please check back for more music.
The music provided on this site is free to download and distribute for Liturgical use only.
