Note: Clicking a "View" link will open a PDF file, which can be printed. Clicking a "Chant" link will open a recording of the hymn chanted by the monks of our monastery. Some of these recordings will download slowly due to their large size.

The translation used for these Ordination hymns is copyrighted by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Brookline and is used with their permission. We chose their translation because many people throughout the world hold their liturgical translations in high regard due to their precision, meter, and elegance. While the music is copyright St. Anthony’s Monastery, the texts are copyright Holy Transfiguration Monastery, and may not be further distributed or used in sound or print publications or otherwise without the prior written permission of Holy Transfiguration Monastery.

For the time being we have only composed music for the Wedding Service and the hymns chanted during an Ordination. At a later date we hope to compose music for the other Mysteries as well.
