- 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
- 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.
- Rearranged the home page. Reworked the Bridegroom servicce
exapostelarion melody and made separate access links to it and the
Bridegroom troparion on the Holy Week page. Added service texts in
Greek and English to the Holy Week page.
3/24/2020 - All of the
files of the Roubanis Greek Orthros book have been, corrected, improved
and updated. See Orthros on the Services page.
2/8/2020 - Divine
Liturgy, GOAA text, chant version: Corrected the key signature of the
first page of the Plagal Second Cherubic hymn (also corrected in the
harmony version); added 1st Tone Tou Dhipnou Sou/O Son of God, Receive
me. Fixed some typos. Added MIDI files for rehearsal.
- Added a melodic "Glory..." to the Praises of the Holy Tuuesday evening
Bridegroom service, page 38 in the complete Holy Week Book, and page 11
in the Holy Tuesday evening booklet. Also added the Greek version of
the Troparion of Kassiani to the Holy Week page.
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.
- 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.
11/19/2019 - Changed formatting of the Communion hymns to have both
Greek and English versions on the same page.
11/18/2019 - Added the Foreword from the Roubanis Orthros book,
translated into English by Fr. S. A. Dedes
- 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).
11/03/2019 - A correction was made to the link to the generic
apolytikion for a male martyr
- 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.
- 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.
