Sing along with us so that others can sing along with you. CANTORS’ CORNER lets you listen to the propers as you read them (with or without music). Anyone can practice for days or weeks in advance of any particular Sunday or Feast Day so that they can better lead their congregation.

This tool encompasses English language propers for Sundays and Major Feast Days and ascribes to the Gregorian calendar. We are using the translation that is being used by Fr. John Sianchuk, CSsR, as it is used widely in our Eparchy. We have been very consistent in delivering these recordings in a timely fashion. Share your satisfaction with others and share your suggestions with us.

We will always consider this project as a “work in progress” and your feedback helps it to evolve.

Our next additions are going to be the Panakhyda (both languages), Parastas and Divine Liturgy. What should we add after that? If you are using this tool and have a need for something more, then please send suggestions to

Just me,

Fr. Ivan Nahachewsky
