When I as appointed chairman of the Sacred Music Department in February, 2006, I sa that e had already typeset s Byzantine Vespers Proect as he originally rote it. Some of the accenting of the music as incorrect, but the ison as added, and e had a much cleaner copy of it all. I then began to proof and correct his Byzantine Matins Proect, already typeset by +Michael Kargatis, ith the opportunity to make sure the barring and accenting of the music and the ison ere done properly, and that the text as according to the approved text from The Divine Prayers & Services by Nassar. This Proect as completed and approved for use in The next Proect our department took on as Kazan s Menaion, the music for many of the Feast Days of the Saints and the 9 fixed Maor Feast Days of the Orthodox Church celebrated throughout the year, since e discovered back then that it as out of print. This has been a 5 year proect, no completed at the end of The music presented here in each of the 12 months of the Menaion is basically the original music ritten by and Ray George, of blessed memory, but also corrected in the same manner as the Matins. In this updated, typeset edition of the Menaion, e have corrected the barring and accenting of the music, corrected the text according to Nassar, added various rubrics and instructions for the services according to the Typikon, added the names of the special melodies used for various stichera in Vespers and Matins, and added the ison to complete the style of Byzantine chant. The music presented here is to be used in conunction ith Kazan s Vespers and Matins Proect, as ell as Nassar. I am eternally grateful to Deborah Abraham for doing the initial typesetting of the Menaion back in 2007; to Michael Farro and Emily Loe for their role in proofing the final editions of each month; to Chadi Karam for helping me along the ay ith the correct ison; and to Paul Jabara, our current chairman, for alloing me to finish this Proect. May God continue to bless you all as e sing His praises throughout the year, glorify His holy Name, honor His Saints and celebrate the Feast Days of the Holy Orthodox Church. Yours in Christ, Christopher Holey
