Byzantine Music and the Psaltic Art
An essential part of worship in the church's liturgical life is the Psaltic Art. The chanters, along with the choir, lead the people to Eucharistic worship. With the readings of the Old and New Testament, the people are taught the Word of God. With the psalms and the hymns of the church the people are taught how to glorify God. "I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. May my meditation be sweet to Him; I will be glad in the Lord" (Ps. 104). The mission of the Annunciation Cathedral Byzantine Music Ministry is to spread and teach the Psaltic Art to all people, and to hand this tradition off to the next of generations. All members of the community, our youth, and our young adults, are invited to join in prayer at the chant stand on Sundays and Feast Day services, to participate and learn about this life-giving liturgical tradition.
Services are offered every Sunday, with Orthros (Matins) beginning at 8:30 am, followed by the Divine Liturgy at 10:00 am. Please refer to our parish calendar and Bulletin regarding weekday services and Feast Day dates.
