Over the past couple of months, there have been a good number of posts and discussion topics related to the changes proposed by the Inter-Eparchial Liturgical and Music Commissions to the Divine Services in the Metropolia of Pittsburgh.

Those discussions have taken place in a number of the sub-Forums (including "The Kliros").

In an effort to consolidate those discussions and create a place explicitly for that discussion, a new sub-Forum has been created in the General Discussion section of the Forum -- 9. The Revised Divine Liturgy .

As a Moderator of "The Kliros," I would kindly ask that any future discussions pertaining to the proposed new textual, rubrical and musical changes to the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom offered by the Inter-Eparchial Liturgical & Musical Commissions of the Metropolitan Church of Pittsburgh be posted in that new sub-Forum.

That way, "The Kliros" can continue to be a place for those who chant the Liturgy to discuss the other pertinent topics of the day or to share music with one another.

We will have moved and/or linked old discussions on these topics that were previously posted in "The Kliros" to this new sub-Forum.

As was noted 3 and a half years ago - in the above post, this subforum was not intended to become a child of the RDL forum - and will not be permitted to become such.

Since the subforum doesn't have a lot of traffic, there hasn't been any real effort lately to restrict its threads to discussions between and among cantors. As a result, hymnography and other topics relevant to sacred music have found their way here. Nothing about that is going to change unless there is a large scale migration to and participation in the subforum by cantors, although its primary focus and reason for existence continues to be for cantors and about the chanting of the Divine Liturgy.

However, if you have issues regarding hymnography forbidden in the Byzantine Metropolia under changes enacted by the Metropolitan Council of Hierarchs, take them to the RDL forum. Posted here, they will not be moved - they will be deleted.

Many years,

Neil

As I noted a while back (in the immediately preceding post), it doesn't make sense to restrict this sub-forum to cantors and chant, because postings relative to those matters isn't sufficiently high to justify it and enough other members were posting to it that it was already acquiring a broader topic base - Sacred Music, or whatever one might want to term it.

Despite raising that point previously, threads relative to the broader topic continue to pop up in other fora - Faith & Worship and Town Hall, in particular. I've been moving these to here and leaving redirects in the forum of origin. I'd encourage anyone posting on matters musical related to the Churches to post here from the outset.

Many years,

Neil
