All hymns here in Byzantine notation are only in English. Hymns in Greek were not written out in Byzantine notation for this website since they are already available in published books of Byzantine music.

To view (and print) a hymn, click the word "view" next to the hymn you want. To hear a hymn played by your computer, click the word "hear" next to the hymn you want. Finale NotePad 2005 required - Click here for free download

Note: Clicking a "Hear" link will open a playable Finale file. In order to hear the music with Finale NotePad, you need to click on the green triangle button in its toolbar. You may need to increase the volume settings on your computer, since the playback volume of Finale files is rather low. Even though these files may be printed, it is not suggested to do so, since the fonts and graphics will not appear as they should. Clicking a "View" link will open a PDF file, which is meant to be printed.

The translation used for the hymns of Vespers is copyrighted by 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.
