The Texts -- Where To Get Them

It strikes me that some of you might wish to know from where the texts in the "From the Triodion" posts are taken.

The Melkite Greek Catholic Eparchy of Netwon has translated and published nearly the entire collection of liturgical "hymn books" of the Byzantine Tradition. The excerpts in these posts are taken from the three volume set, The Triodion, published by Sophia Press.

The books are excellently printed in spiral-bound format with a "chanter's size" font on good-quality paper. The costs are moderate, and I highly recommend them for anyone wishing to deepen their appreciation of the Byzantine Tradition, especially during Great Lent.
