  • Services for Holy Week and Easter

    Translated by Fr. Contos and edited by Fr. Kezios, this text contains all of the services celebrated during Holy Week. The Greek text is a careful reconstruction (not scanned copy) of the authorized version, free of elision or back-referencing. The English text is a fresh translation, avoiding the often tortuous Greek syntax. This version is remarkable both for its fidelity to the meaning of the original and for its compelling clarity.  In a new, thin, light pocket book edition, it is almost half the weight of other editions yet the PRINT IS LARGER

  • The Liturgikon

    The first bilingual (Greek/English) Liturgikon ever published.  It is intended to meet the needs of our Church in the Americas.

    The translation of the Liturgikon from the original Greek was rendered by the late Fr. Leon Contos.  What does this mean to you?  You now have an additional book for your liturgical use, which uses the same language for the petitions and responses of our previous publications of Orthros, Holy Week, and Lenten Liturgies and Sacraments and Services (in three volumes).

    The size of The Liturgikon  is convenient (7 x 10), neither overly bulky or heavy. The text is in two colors (red and black), and the print is large.  It is case-bound in black cloth. A gold Cross, set in a field of crimson red, distinguishes both the front and back cover.  As you open the book, you will note that the symbolic crimson color, on antique paper, has been used for the endleafs thus further enhancing the appearance.

  • Paraclesis, The Office of Supplication to Saint Nectarios

    Translated by Reverend Spencer T. Kezios.  Narthex Press has published, in Greek and in English, the Paraclesis to Saint Nectarios as a supplement to the prayer life of our people. The availability of this booklet in parish bookstores will indeed be a welcome addition.

    No saint in our time has received the veneration of the faithful as greatly as Saint Nectarios. The countless and oft times unchronicled miracles attributed to his intercessions have touched a myriad of lives. In times of illness or personal crises he has become, so to speak, a personal saint to whom people plead for his prayerful intercessions.

    However, our primary purpose was to assist the clergy in their pastoral ministry. Prayer  is how every priest reaches out to the sick. Leaving the gift of the Paraclesis to Saint Nectarios at their bedside will comfort them as they pray either with either their Priest, family members or  alone.  Families will also appreciate this prayer guide as they keep vigil over their ailing family member.

  • Byzantine Chants CD8 and Music Book Eighth Tone

    Narthex Press has always believed it possible to merge the melodic chants of our Byzantine music with words which do not blindly comply to musical syllables just to make the melody familiar. When words are inserted just to fit music it oft times makes the text unwieldy, incomprehensible and awkward. We believe the true test comes when the translated text must stand alone.
    Through the years we have endeavored, while remaining true to our Orthodox theology, that these translations must not be awkward, or even by word misusage, embarrassing.
    We have chosen the more difficult and time consuming effort of melding music and verse rather than counting syllables to fit music. We hope that upon hearing these CDs that you will agree. We ask for your prayers and patience. Soon we hope to follow with the complete the series. This a work and labor that should neither be rushed nor happenstance. As more English is introduced in our worship we must make sure that its fidelity to our theology and translation remain true yet with dignity and at a level of language that can not only convey but also attract, teach, and inspire. We feel that these recordings make a strong statement that we have arrived.

  • The Akathist Hymn with Accompanying CD

    This is a new and inspirational rendering of one of our oldest Liturgical treasures. The Salutations themselves have been rendered in a manner reflecting the poetic cadence of the original Greek yet maintaining the integrity of the English language. Each of the Fridays, from the first to the fifth is complete without flipping pages back and forth. The confusion of what to pray and when has thus been eliminated. The translation follows the traditional music of the Byzantine chant.

    The book itself is beautifully bound. The print is readable, and the compact size makes it an easy fit for pocket or purse.

    The listener of the CD will be able to choose hearing the entire service or only excerpts. The Byzantine chant, rendered by a chorus of priests, is truly inspirational, and also serves as a learning tool for participation in the hymnology. The Service is easily chanted to the traditional melody.
