Finally a true companion to the Gold-Standard Holy Week Easter Book in Greek and English by Fr. George Papadeas, with Music and a Digital Option.
DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A completely NEW "Holy Week Easter Hymnal" has been published by Patmos Press to serve as the companion to the ever-popular Holy Week Easter book by Father George L. Papadeas
This hymnal contains all the music of the Holy Week Easter services as sung by the chanters and the choir, with markings for the corresponding pages in the small black service book, referencing the beginning and ending of each hymn.
Although this hymnal is primarily for the use of chanters and choirs, any person in the congregation wishing to sing with them, could use the hymnal as well as their service book.
Responding to continual requests, and for the first time ever, in response to growing demand, a digital edition of the hymnal is now available on a USB Flash Drive (also referred to as a "thumb drive" or "memory stick" for only $24.99
This Hymnal is a true blessing for the Psalti or Chantor, by eliminating the need improvise melodies (which has often been done in the past, but always results in an inferior performance in both languages, especially in English).
Each volume contains the entire service, including the parts for the priest, deacon, and reader, with the hymns interpolated at the right places, so that there would be a continuous scroll from beginning to end.
The entire purpose of the digital version is to eliminate the juggling of books for the chanters, thereby having a complete service in each file makes the most sense and the product more desirable.
An ever-growing population of priests are using an I-Pad or other tablet for more of everything, so to with a copy of the Black Book services (text only) in side-by-side columns of Greek and English.
