Recorded Music

Recorded Music

Liturgical chant is, above all, sung chant - and sung chant is best learned by hearing. We hope that the following recordings may provide both instruction and edification. Note that not all use the current English translations and music, and some of the Church Slavonic settings follow the Papp Irmologion rather than the Bokšai Prostopinije.

This recording of Paschal Matins in prostopinije was underwritten by Saint Andrew Byzantine Catholic Church, Mentor-on-the-Lake, Ohio, and its pastor, Father Bryan Eyman, and recorded by the Schola Cantorum of St. Peters in the Loop at Saint Volodymyr and Olha Ukrainian Catholic Church in Chicago. The harmonizations are the property of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute; contact Professor Thompson for more information.
