Father Gallos uses the existing English translations for the prayers and cantillations, but has modified and adapted the translations for the music which is sung by the choir.

The Archieratical Divine Liturgy – 1978 Clergy-Laity Congress, Detroit, Michigan, July 1978 CD
The Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom celebrated by the late Archbishop Iakovos and the Archdiocesan Bishops in 1978 was of historical significance to our church musicians across America. This excellent professional recording of that historic liturgy is reissued as a commemorative 2-CD package to honor the loving memory of the late Archbishop Iakovos. On the occasion of this liturgy, the Archdiocese officially recognized the National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians as “the musical arm of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America.” The recording is a composite liturgical setting created to honor the major Greek Orthodox composers of liturgical choral music in America at that time: Theodore Bogdanos, Frank Desby, Anna Gallos, Demetrios Pappas and Tikey Zes. George S. Raptis served as conductor of the 160-voice choir for this Liturgy and Niki E. Kalkanis, was the National Forum Chairman who organized the event.

TODAY THE VIRGIN IS ON HER WAY
Vespers for December 20th, the Feast of St. Ignatios of Antioch and the Pre-feast of Christmas CD in English
The simple daily vespers of the 20th of December. On this day is remembered one of the earliest recorded martyrs, St. Ignatios of Antioch (died 98 AD). It is also the first day of the formal preparation for Christmas. The title “Behold the Virgin is on her way” is taken from a hymn (Kondakion) that is chanted at every liturgy after Nov. 21st until Christmas Eve. It was written by St. Romanos the Melodist in the early 5th century. St. Theodore the Studite, the patron saint of our monastic brotherhood, composed the verses for St. Ignatios in the 8th century while the verses for Christmas were written in the 5th century by Patriarch Anatolios of Constantinople.
