I have added another section to the website called "Other Resources". This is my attempt to put all of the major chanting resources that I have found at other sites online in one place for you to refer to.
I have included many essays that I found enlightening regarding the history and development of Byzantine chant as well as its adaptation into English. If you are just starting to learn to chant you should definitely follow the first three links. I have also included learning resources and references that I have used during my studies. I taught myself the most of the interval symbols and some rhythms using the Margaziotis manual. The other learning resources are more useful one you have that basic knowledge. There is also a section providing links to online and print sources for music in Byzantine notation as well as links that provide service texts and rubrics. Finally, I included links to resources for those interested in composition. The byzantine music formulae are the ones that I used to compile the parallage phrases
On a side note, my fall project is to finish the level 1 phrases:) I have been procrastinating for two years now, but the time has come for me to finish them. Actually, my friend Nick is coming to the rescue. We are going to work on them some weekend in August or September. He has tested out the phrases in a number of different teaching settings and I think he's ready for more too. I know that my students would definitely benefit from them.
Check out the links and let me know if I missed anything!
SAHM by day; ByzB curriculum developer by night. My career was in teaching: kindergarten, first grade, bilingual reading, Suzuki piano, and Music Mind Games. Now I paint icons and spend lots of time making materials on the computer. My greatest joy is directing my students in their learning. This blog documents the process and provides a space for my other ramblings as well.
