Welcome to the Synodal School of Liturgical Music's Student Space! Here, you will find almost everything you need in preparation for our annual summer session. In addition, you will receive links to listening materials for Church Music History and the Choir Conducting Anthology via email: keep an eye out from a message from Valentina Shatalova. Looking forward to seeing you on July 14!
SSLM Welcome Letter: Chock-full of information, you will have received it by email already, but in case you wish to read it again....
Sample Schedule (please note that you will receive a hard copy upon arrival)
Opening Day Moleben (For First Years: We will be singing this as a group as the first activity of the school, on Sunday at 2 pm in the main monastery cathedral. We will provide hard copies; don’t worry if you don’t learn it before then!)
Concluding Moleben (For First Years: This is some of the music you will be learning in the Choir Class, in preparation for the Thanksgiving Moleben at the end of the Session. Hard copies will be available, but it's a good idea to take a look at the music in advance, to maximize rehearsal results).
Music for the Choir Class: Please download and take a look at the music provided via this link, in preparation for this year’s choir class - these are pieces that students will be conducting. You will get hard “official” copies when you arrive (Note: the instructor reserves the right to switch out pieces, depending on the actual composition of the choir (he may choose to add harder or easier pieces, depending).
Prayer After Meals (We will be singing this in Slavonic as a group every day after lunch and dinner: here, we provide the Slavonic text, translation, and transcription into Latin alphabet)
The Lord’s Prayer in Slavonic (with translation and transcription into Latin alphabet. We will be singing it before lunch and dinner daily).
