Selected Byzantine Hymns: According to the Tradition of the Great Church of Christ, Including Troparia Taken from Vespers, Great Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha, Transcribed from the Chrysanthine Byzantine Notation

   
“Though humble in format, we believe that the present book, which was translated and transcribed by the fathers of our monastery, fills a pronounced need in regards to the Church’s sacred chant set to an English text. As the title indicates, the hymns contained herein are but a selection, yet our hope is that this small selection will serve to whet the appetite of those who seek to learn more of these hymns of ‘gladdening sorrow,’ of these sacred songs of the spiritual Sion, the New Israel.”
