We continue to publish notes of everyday church hymns for the holidays for those who independently prepare for services or participate in amateur choirs.

The feast of the feast begins with the words "In Virginity virginity has preserved thou art" (the first "line") and is sung on the 1st voice.
The troparion and kontakion of the Nativity of Christ are church chants, which are often heard for the services in the churches during the whole Christmas celebrations.

At the end of the matins of the Easter service, Easter Poems are sung - notes of the everyday melody of these verses on the fifth voice can be downloaded directly from the page where you are now.

Flesh falling asleep - these are the first words of the exapostilaria of Easter, which is sung three times in a choir or trio after the singing of the Paschal canon (after the ninth song of the minor litany). Exapostilaria is a special song in which the retelling of a passage from the Gospel read in matins is given in a concise form.
Christmas is one of the most beloved holidays in Russia. A long time ago, there was a tradition in the days of the celebration of this joy-filled holiday to congratulate each other with singing Christmas carols. Carols are the most different: some retell the Gospel events of the night to us, in which the Savior descended to the earth to the people, others scattered with the genuine joy of the national holiday, others and quite comic ones.
Every day the feast of the Nativity of Christ is getting closer and closer. Today I will introduce you to two more carols - "The night is quiet over Palestine" and "This is a holy night." As always, you can download the notes and texts of these carols for yourself. In the attached file you will find two options for the musical notation of each song - for high and for low voices.

For our site now it has become a tradition to publish notes of festive church chants, in particular tropari and kondaki. This time we prepared notes for you: troparion and kontakion of the Transfiguration of the Lord. Despite the fact that any kondak or troparion is sung on the established vocal chant, and for professional right or left choirs there is no difficulty in singing them, we found it necessary to write as many songs as possible with the notes.
