As we stated in our introductory page, all of our chant at St. James come from the traditional Byzantine chant which is comprised of its 8 tones or modes. The Byzantine chant forms the foundation for most of our liturgical prayer.
In its fullest form, Byzantine chant is a very rich and complex musical genre. There exists a plethora of information about this awesome musical field, both on the web and in print. Below are a few links which can be used to begin an exploration.
We always welcome and are looking for new participants for our chanting program. If you have an interest, please speak to our Music Director, Kh. Rebecca.
