Now Available: Hyperlinking of Sacred Music Within Liturgical Texts

 

 

 

 

 

Tired of searching for sheet music to match the texts of the divine services while trying to worship in church? The Departments of Sacred Music and Liturgics have teamed up to make things easier for our chanters and choirs by now providing hyperlinks to pieces of music, built right into the PDF versions of the Liturgical Texts of the Online Liturgical Guide. Click on the hyperlinks from any computer or smart device for many of our hymns arranged by composers of the Antiochian Archdiocese, such as "O Lord, I Have Cried;" apolytikia and kontakia for Sundays feasts and saints; seasonal katabasiae; the Praises; prosomoia (model hymns); and so much more.

Each of the blue-colored links will take you directly to the music itself. Chanters using smart devices (phones and tablets) for the divine services in church can sing that piece of music, hit the "back" button, and return to the Liturgical Text where they left off to continue with the service until the next hyperlink.
