Department of Liturgical Music and Translations

The Department of Liturgical Music and Translations serves as an advisory body to the Metropolitan and the Holy Synod of Bishops in matters concerning liturgical translations and music, liturgics, and other matters affecting the liturgical life of the Church.

In addition to providing appropriate musical settings for use in worship, the Department produces publications and workshop materials on liturgical singing, develops a coherent and liturgically sound approach to the singing of the divine services, especially in the English language, and coordinates the weekly postings of music, text, and audio file resources available on the OCA web site.

The Department also develops standard liturgical texts, translations, and guidelines which accurately reflect the original texts, while taking into consideration the complexities of usage and nuance.
