Select the type of Notation you prefer:


Holy Week
Pascha and the Pentecostarion

Note: Only the Apolytikia and Kontakia have been composed for these sections. God willing, we will compose the rest of the music for the Triodion, Holy Week, and the Pentecostarion at some later date.

Please bear in mind that some music for the Triodion and Pentecostarion is to be found elsewhere in this website. For example, the Lenten Prokeimena of Sunday Vespers are found in the "Special Days" subsection of Vespers. The polyeleos psalm "By the waters of Babylon" and the post-gospel hymns for Sunday Orthros of the Triodion are found after Psalm 50 in the "Special Days" subsection of Orthros. Music for the Liturgy of St. Basil and the Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts are to be found in the corresponding orange buttons above. And troparia chanted in the Divine Liturgy (such as the cherubic hymns for Holy Week, heirmoi of the ninth ode, and communion hymns) are found in the section for the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
