2/18/2021 - In the Roubanis Greek Orthros books, an error was correccted in the Katavasia of The Publican and the Pharisee / Cheesefare. In the Megalynaria, the genre is supposed to be hard chromatic and was not marked so. That has been corrected and a key signature of a G# on the staff was added to indicate all G's should be changed to G# to achieve the hard chromatic scale.

2/15/2021 - The home page of newbyz.org was reformatted and updated.

8/2/2020 - Added the Greek folk song "O Spinos (The Little Finch)" in Greek and English

5/8/2020 - In the music for the Papadeas Holy Week book (the Black Book), in the Pascha Agape Vespers, the Aposticha have been corrected. A missing hymn was added and 3 misplaced hymns were removed.

In addition, there were some measures in the Roubanis Greek Katavasias of Pascha where the musical
lines were a little off. These were corrected, so the melodies, especially in the first ode, are exactly as Roubanis transcribed them.

12/20/2019 - There was a typo in the phonetics of the Pasa Pnoi of the Ainoi on the word "ουρανον" in all eight tones. I have corrected it in the book of the resurrectional hymns and the individual booklets.

11/20/2019 - Corrected the Greek language Apolytikion of St. Savas, DDecember 5. The four notes of the measure that contains the syllables "pres-ve-ve Chri-" were one-step too high.

11/18/2019 - Added the Foreword from the Roubanis Orthros book, translated into English by Fr. S. A. Dedes

11/13/2019 - In the Roubanis Orthros book, the Katavasias of the Proddigal Song, the Tone (Mode) was identified as Plagal Second, but it is actually Second Tone, so the designation was corrected.

11/11/2019 - In the Orthros Resurrectional Hymns, the Third Tone Kathisma 1b was accidentally holding the place where the Fourth Tone Kathisma 1a should have been. It's been corrected.

11/11/2019 - A correction was made to the Roubanis Orthros book in the Katavasias for the Last Judgement (Meatfare).

10/31/2019 - Name of "St. Lydia" was removed from list of Martyrs in the apolytikion of those martyrs celebrated in that generic hymn. This was an error due to a misreading of saints names. St. Lydia is celebrated on March 27, but her apolytikion is not chanted on Sundays.

10/26/2019 - Correction of misaligned Greek text on page 139 of Roubaanis Orthros Resurrectional Hymns in the Sunday Anastasimatarion, and also on page 11 of the Grave Tone Resurrectional Orthros hymns booklet.
