As part of a continuing effort to provide the American Orthodox Church with resources, we now offer two sister sites: sttikhonskliros.org and patraminstitute.org.
Orthodox two part music is based primarily on Znamenny Chant and is given as an offering to the Church in America with the hope that it will transcend jurisdictional boundaries. Nevertheless, there are many different kinds of chants from different Orthodox traditions which are to be found on the pages of this website, all of which share a common life and vision in Christ. All the music on this site is free and includes sheet music in PDF format, audio files (in mp3) and Midi files. It is hoped that people within the Church will find this site useful and that it will be another step in the process of establishing an organic expression of Orthodox Liturgical Life in America. These particular adaptations are designed to be relatively simple(r), beautiful, full sounding (only two parts needed,) and relatively easy to learn (especially with the audio files.) Many of them are not strict note for note translations but rather a synthesis, blending and melding elements that are common to several Orthodox chant traditions.
