Chanting the responses, prayers, and hymns of the Orthros, Divine Liturgy, Vespers, and other services is a historical part of the Orthodox Tradition. They represent the congregation. Chanters serve their Church with faith and dedication each Sunday, during Holy Week, and throughout the year on the many weekday services. It is their responsibility to offer the Church hymns which are chanted in the cycle of eight different modes. Chanters also offer their gifts as readers of the Epistles, Creed and Lord’s Prayer.
