“If anyone has arrived even at the eleventh hour, let him not fear on account of his delay.” — Paschal Homily of St. John Chrysostom
With Holy Saturday and Great and All-holy Pascha quickly approaching, the Department of Sacred Music has produced full scores of Byzantine hymnography, ready for use by chanters and choirs across the Antiochian Archdiocese. Chadi Karam of St. George Church of Cicero, Ill. spent months composing the arrangements which include the canons for Orthros on both days, the Doxasticon of Holy Saturday (“The Great Moses”), the Paschal Stichera (“Let God arise”), and so much more.
The music is available in Western and Byzantine notations. You can find it in the Sacred Music Library as well as the Online Liturgical Guide by clicking on the calendar for April 26 and April 28. For the latter, the music will be available in both the English and bilingual PDFs.
