Saint George Publishing - The John C. Velon Collection
Transcribed Collections - Byzantine Melodies in Greek - Western Notation

The collected works of John C. Velon include more than 10,000 individual hymns in collections of hymns for essentially all liturgical services for the entire ecclesiastical year that a chanter of the Greek Orthodox Church would require. Many chanters throughout the world have made use of Mr. Velon's hand-written manuscripts in the Greek language. A much smaller number of hymns have also been adapted to the English language.

Copies of the Velon manuscripts are no longer available in printed form, but are now available in two different electronic formats for general distribution: either as PDF files or as a programmed interface called VIVECOL, both give the user access to all individual hymns as well as to all collections of hymns. All the collections outlined below are available through Saint George Publishing at prices shown below.  Any items you  Add to Cart will be confirmed by E-mail and shipped to you upon payment.
