Virtual Chant Instructor

Virtual Chant Instructor for the iPad is being retired!

We are now focusing our attention on Digital Chant Stand, which has VCI's content and more. We encourage you to download it now.

Virtual Chant Instructor brings together texts, musical scores and audio recordings of Orthodox Christian hymns to facilitate learning and preparation to sing in church. People learn faster when an instructor supplies an audio model. VCI provides that.

The first volume of VCI is Holy Week and Easter. The texts of all the hymns are in English, and the musical scores are in both Byzantine and Western notations. The translations, musical compositions and recordings are by Fr. Seraphim Dedes.

- Read the text of a hymn
- See the music in Western or Byzantine notation
- Listen to the audio recording
- Be ready to chant for Holy Week
