I have been taking the Liturgical texts from the OCA website and putting them to the Tones for the week in the Obikod style.  I'm currently doing the "Lord, I Call", Litya & Aposticha verses for Great Vespers that have not already been put to music as well as any thing for the Divine Liturgy.  I'd welcome feedback and am curious if anyone else would find this useful.  Also this may already be being done by somebody and I'd hate to be duplicating work.

All of these are posted as PDFs at: http://www.ocanwa.org/what-we-believe/resources.  By the way, I'm using Lilypond and I'd be glad to share or post these files as well.

The Cross is the guardian of the whole earth.
The Cross is the beauty of the Church.
The Cross is the strength of Orthodox Christians.
The Cross is the support of the faithful.
The Cross is the glory of the angels,

Communion hymn in Polish on some familiar melody (not sure but likely perfomed by my parish choir - am I right, Dominika?)

The melody is used. You have English words written.

I found this recording a lot time ago on the website of "Radio Orthodoxia" and as I remember it's a choir from Białystok ;)

That's chanting I really like - Russian "Greek" Chant

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP4TyhAs66M" > Irmos of the first ode of Nativity (Christ is born, glorify Him!)</a>

I wish in Polish churches there were used two settings for this Canon (Allemanov and one of byzantine like this one from the video or more byzantine-greek)

Does anyone know where specifically / who this music comes from?  It is little pieces of the Liturgy in Slavonic, first the Trisagion, then shifts to the "priidite, poklonimsya i pripadem ko Hristu"...etc. but it almost sounds like a different choir when it shifts.  The third part I can hear the priest a little, and he sounds familiar.  Anyone know this particular arrangement?  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wujZiZ3ZRXU&feature=related

Actually I just listened again, and after the 'let us fall down and worship Christ, there is a Slava Ottsu i Sinu i Svyatomu Duhu... but the accent sounds really different from other Slavonic I've heard.  What area is this from?

A solemn Divine Liturgy with Russian patriarch Kiryll in a female monastery in Ekatinburg. I love chants of these nuns (some Russian znamienny chant, some Russian 'Greek' chant and some byzantine parts) so I'm very glad that official canal of the Moscow Patriarchate put full Liturgy from this monastery done in Paschal Period. Fortunately, the commentator is talking quite rarely. And what's more, this new church of the monastery is very nice (I appreciate especially the frescoes).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUnM6IO4yno - the Body of Christ, Serbian chant, famous composition by Govedarica. However, ending is uncommon, an addition of the director (maybe it is not so traditional, but I find it really good)

And that's also very interesting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9ANPW0VbMo - set of various chants of Cherubic Hymns used in Serbian Orthodox Church

I think it's not been posted yet.

Actually these hymns are not in Slavic, but in Dutch using Eastern Slavic melodies (unfortunately). There are: usual Divine Liturgy, Vesperal Liturgy of Maundy Thursday, Great Vespers of Good Friday and Paschal midnight service plus some other hymns for various occassions

I spent last Christmas at a Greek Orthodox monastery, and during the all-night vigil, the only lighting in the church was from one of these.  Sublime!

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9AoegqiRGrm1IQie6YDCcg/videos">Orthodox Divine Liturgy in Church Slavonic based on Gregorian (traditional western) chant sung by a mixed Ukrainian choir</a> ;D

For me the numbers below are particularly interesting:
2 and 3 - Bless the Lord o my soul on the melody of Ubi Caritas by Durufle,
10 - Alleluia that's used in Catholic Church also nowadays during the period of the holy 50 days,
16 - It is truly meet on the melody of one of famous western hymns to the Theotokos and
18 - Our Father - I'm so familiar with this melody as it's still used in RC churches.

http://www.parafia.org.ua/audio/pieces/sacred - the source is Greek Catholic, but, still, there are plenty of recordings of the liturgical (and also para-liturgical, including carols) hymns chanted in Church Slavonic and Ukrainan, that are also used (and, in some cases, composed - I mean musical arrangements) in the Orthodox Church

Valaam Chant, "Rejoice Thou Bride Unwedded" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6EurgsdeF8

This is so beautiful it could move you to tears.  We sang this last night in English for Annunciation, but we were not in the same league as these Russian monks from Valaam monastery.  There is a strong connection from Valaam to America via St. Herman and the First Mission to Alaska, so thank you so much, Valaam.
