Designed for congregational signing, the Divine Liturgy Hymnal is a musical setting of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom that was produced in 2016 by the Holy Eparchial Synod of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and approved by the Ecumenical Patriarchate. This Hymnal also contains additional hymns that were translated and approved by the Holy Eparchial Synod, as well as hymns from the _Oloi Mazi project of the National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians. Please review the table of contents page to see the list of additional hymns by clicking on View More Images.
This new Hymnal offers new arrangements of the hymns with a more _Byzantine sound than the older hymnal. There are slight melodic variations in the musical phrasing of the Greek and English versions of the same hymn to better express the text and meet the musical need of each language appropriately.
The National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians and the Department of Religious Education worked together to create this new Hymnal, which was approved by the Eparchial Synod.

This is very useful, what my family particular likes is that the fact that on the Greek page, the words are transliterated into the Latin script, which helps us pronounce Greek when is is sung in Church. No one speaks Greek in our immediate family, so this is very helpful.
