Draft and Pre-release Publications
This page contains music which is either being prepared by the MCI for release, or which contains pre-release texts and/or music from the Intereparchial Liturgy and Music Commissions. We invite cantors to look over these materials, and send comments, questions or suggestions to the website administrator.
Pre-release materials from the MCI
The following materials will be put on the MCI website in final form when reviews are complete. If you will be printing copies for parish use, you may wish to wait until the review is done.
- August 6 - Feast of the Transfiguration
- August 15 - Dormition of the Theotokos
- September 8 - Nativity of the Theotokos
- September 14 - Exaltation of the Cross
- Sunday Hymns of the Byzantine Lectionary (draft)
We have received several requests for a collection of the hymns that Professor Thompson wrote for the Sundays of the year, based on the lectionary readings of each Sunday. Other parishes have requested versions of the Sunday propers that omit these hymns. We hope to meet both these needs by presenting this volume, which contains all the lectionary hymns for the liturgical year, in the same page size as the MCI propers leaflets, so that they can be added to the propers as desired.
Drafts and other materials for comment
The following materials are being made available for review ONLY. We invite your comments and questions, but the permission of your bishop or pastor should be sought before they are used in parishes.
