Music for the Presanctified Liturgy

Here you will find a collection of music generally reflecting what we use at St Elisabeth's.  Most of it is produced internally, based on general Russian Orthodox usage, while a few pieces are borrowed from elsewhere.  A handful of pieces have been recently composed.  All of it is manageable by a small choir of amateur singers and should help to foster congregational singing where desired.

We are pleased to also be working with Orarion, the Orthodox music notation software, to create a section of our library with editable sheet music. This music can be accessed both as a PDF and also through the Orarion website. In Orarion, you can listen to the score, your singers can learn their vocal parts, and you can easily edit the sheet music to match your singers’ needs.

To use Orarion, you’ll need to register: https://orarion.co.uk. If you have any questions regarding the editable scores, please email support@vesperus.co.uk.

This is a work in progress.  More music will appear here as it is produced.  Please feel free to download it for your own parish use.
