Settings of the Divine Liturgy

ANASTASSIOU, GEORGE
Greek Byzantine Liturgical Hymnal
Contains two liturgies written in major and minor settings: 1) Enharmonic Minor Imperial Byzantine Liturgy and 2) Diatonic Major Byzantine Royal Liturgy. Includes most of the extra liturgical hymns used throughout the year. The Appendix of the book is very accurate in the transcription of chant and the placement of the Ison. This work is a good standard Liturgy for most choirs to use. The completeness of the volume and its organization make it suitable for men or women, as well as mixed groups. Drawn from the composition of many Byzantine composers. The work is of medium difficulty. Greek Phonetics and English text are included.

CARDIASMENOS, STEVEN
The Divine Liturgy of the Greek Orthodox Church
(SEM 1013)
Traditional melodies with Greek phonetics. SATB. Contains the Liturgy, Apolytikia, Doxology (in the first plagal mode), as well as two settings each of the Trisagion, Cherubic Hymn, and Enite ton Kyrion. It also includes Osi is Christon, Ton Stavron Su, Ton Evlogounta, Soson Imas for special feast days, and the responses for the Bishop’s Liturgy. The setting is modal throughout. For the most part, the work has been written for a mixed choir of 4-6 parts, with a few examples of chant with ison. The chant melody found in the primary Trisagion was constructed and composed based on 12th century chant formulas and style, and then harmonized. Not overly difficult to learn. For those choirs already familiar with our first Liturgical offering (The Choral Music of the Divine Liturgy, by Frank Desby), you will find that the Cardiasmenos setting was written at a similar level of difficulty.

DESBY, FRANK
The Choral Music of the Divine Liturgy
Collected, transcribed, and arranged for mixed voices. (SEM 1001)
Traditional material as a basis. Contains the Liturgy, eight Apolytikia and responses for the Bishop's Liturgy. Setting is modal whenever possible. The polyphonic style of choral composition is used in many hymns. The "ethos" of each melody has been kept in mind in the harmonization in order to retain the modal characteristics. Except for a few chants with ison, the work has been written for a mixed choir of 4 8 parts. Although not difficult to learn, it is not an easy setting, especially for a relatively untrained group. Contains Greek, phonetics, and English text. Now includes Aghios O Theos Tou Vimatos.

GALLOS, ANNA
Choral Music for the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil the Great
(Gallos I)
Published 1960. Fourth Printing, revised edition
Although the structure of this Liturgy is modal in character, one has the feeling of a major tonality throughout. The treatment is not purely Byzantine in that it is not unharmonized or unaccompanied. Based primarily on traditional Byzantine melodies, this Liturgy employs chant, some modal four part harmony, and occasionally, simple counterpoint in the two voice style. Two distinct Byzantine characteristics are used: the ison and the canonarhima (an intoned recitation that precedes the melody. The melodies are traditional which Sakellarides simplified from the Byzantine. An independent organ accompaniment is employed. Contains Greek text with phonetics.

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (Gallos II)
Published 1970.
This Liturgy is arranged for children's unison choir, and for mixed (SATB) choir. The organ accompaniment is a reduction of the vocal parts. The Liturgy has the Greek text along with the English phonetics. It includes a Doxology and all eight Anastasima Apolytikia. The melodies are based on the Sakellarides and Kapsaski Byzantine adaptations.

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in English (Gallos II)
The familiar Sakellarides melodies are now available in English for mixed choir and/or children’s unison choir. It includes the Doxology and all eight of the Anastasima Apolytikia.

The Divine Liturgy, In the First and Plagal First Modes (Opus 3, The Resurrection Liturgy)
Published 1977.
A work whose melodic sources are taken from traditional Byzantine melodies. In the first and plagal first modes, it is written in three voice texture, melody and ison with the added fifth above the ison. However, there are areas where four and seven part writing is used. It is intended for a cappella singing. Since the proper (changes) for the Resurrection are also in the first and plagal first modes, they have been included. The Liturgy contains: a Doxology, the psalm verses for the antiphons, three arrangements of Christos Anesti, O Angelos Evoa, Soma Christou, Osoi Eis Christon, and two each of Axion Estin, Enite ton Kirion and Idomen to Phos. There are some cantillations written for the priest in order to assist him. Contains Greek text with English phonetics.

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, in English. In the First and Plagal First Modes.
(Translated by Father George Gallos) Published 1977.
This Divine Liturgy, written expressly to be sung in English, uses the standard translation forms modified and adapted by Father Gallos to suit the new music which is based on traditional Byzantine melodies in the first and plagal first modes. The music is similar to Opus 3 and can be used interchangeable by those choirs whose priests like to use both Greek and English during one Liturgy. It is written for mixed choir, the organ accompaniment being the reduction of the choral parts.

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
Arranged for Three-part Women’s Voices and Organ Accompaniment.
This liturgy was arranged and composed explicitly for women’s voices in three parts (SSA) in 1946. The melodic sources from the Antiphons to the Trisagion Hymn are the familiar Sakellarides melodies. The Plirotika to the Se Ymnoumen section are the Athan P. Theodores arrangements of liturgical settings by the leading Greek composers of the 1930’s and 1940’s that have been rearranged by me for treble voices. The music is from easy to medium difficulty for both voices and organ. Even though my stylistic treatment of Byzantine melodies has changed, this liturgy has been re-issued for historical reasons and also for those women’s choirs who are singing only the soprano and alto of an arrangement for SATB.

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
Arranged for Three-part Male Voices in the Third Mode.
The first of the E leftherios Georgiades transcriptions arranged in a simple 3-voice style for tenor, baritone or second tenor and bass. The first two antiphons and the final post communion hymns are the familiar Sakellarides melodies. The rest of the Liturgy is in the third mode.

GEORGE, GEORGE N.
The Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom for Mixed Choir
This Greek and English Liturgy is based on traditional melodies. It also incorporates music by Dr. S. A. Spathis (Agios O Theos to Enite) as arranged and adapted for any size mixed choir, with or without accompaniment. The original Greek is presented with English phonetics, and most of the liturgy can also be sung in English (only a few hymns and responses are not translated). The music is user friendly, no awkward page turns, and very singable – no extreme ranges. It opens in D, moves to G for Ayios O Theos to Enite and finishes in Eb Idhomen to Fos to the end. It also contains, in Greek and English, all eight Apolytikia and all possible substitutions for Soson Imas.

REVEZOULIS, JOHN G.
Doxology and Divine Liturgy
This Liturgy offers something out of the ordinary. It is not, for the most part, an arrangement of pre existing melodies. The material is original. The Liturgy does not claim to be Byzantine. Rather it incorporates various musical elements and styles: Greek liturgical music, Greek demotic music, and music of the Renaissance and Middle Ages. It is modal and has a chant like quality. In general, it suggests the style of music of the early church. The setting is challenging.

Chant renditions are in staff notation with melodic line and ison written out.

The liturgy settings are available both in a letter-sized book format for choirs and in 7”x8½” for congregations. Both books include a memorial service and the congregational books include a hymnal of the most-used apolytikia, kontakia, megalynaria, and other hymns. Both books include the entire text of the liturgy in Greek, Greek phonetics, and English. Customized books are available for your parish.
