Sheet Music for this set of Obikhod music used in services
Posted 19 April 2010 - 05:32 AM
This is the music link:
We've been learning and using this version of the 8 tones (I am told that they are Obikhod tones). I understand that they are used widely in ROCOR (in fact got the music recordings from a ROCOR priest - Fr. John Whiteford) We have newcomers who are asking for the sheet music as they learn better if they have the notes in fromt of them and that is why I need the sheet music.
If anyone is familar with the music that has been arranged by Dr. Timothy Clader and published by SJOKP, please give me some feedback. I have been asked to take a look at that but as I have never seen the music and not had any recommendations I am unsure of whether it is a good idea to order them.

The translations generally are the same as used in ROCOR. Another Great Site is http://music.russianorthodox-stl.org/. Carol Surgent has music in all the tones for many Troparia in various styles of Russian Church Singing (Obikhod, Kievan, "Greek" and Znamenny), plus she sets alot of stichera to the Special or "Podoben" melody.
The Eastern Diocese of ROCOR has a music page now, www.eadiocese.org.
Here are some other good pages for music:
If you are interested in Byzantine Chant, here are two good sites:
And if you can read Russian and Slavonic:

Thanks for the link Michael - I have seen it before and I thought it was similar but wasn't sure. seems that most people using Russian chant have the exact same music for Tone 1. When it comes to the other tones there are so many variations.
Sbdn. Anthony thanks for pointing out that what I have is Kievan chant. It's come to the point that I am very familiar with this set of tones and would like to master the whole set of related melodies for the stikhera and the prokeimenon etc. Thanks for pointing out the St. John Chryosostom Church site - I have downloaded some sheet music form that site.
Edward, thanks for the many, many links. I will go through them slowly. Byzantine chant is lovely but not so accessible for now as most folks here find it a bot too exotic(and difficult) to learn. I like it though! I've been downloading more than a few things from the St. Anthony's Monastery site.
