Byzantine Chanting
===Byzantine Chanting===
Byzantine chanting is a key part of liturgical services in the Archdiocese. Two performance choirs have been formed: the [[Byzantine Ecclesiastical Choir "Saint John of Damascus"]] in Adelaide under [[Elias Frangoulis]], the Archon Protopsaltis of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia; and the [[Australian Byzantine Choir]] in Sydney, now under George Combis, which in addition to performing, first provided a place for Sydney's chanters to be taught, and then provided two of the three teachers for the Archdiocesan [[School of Byzantine Music]], established in 2005 under the auspices of the Saint Andrew's Greek Orthodox Theological College. Both choirs, and the school, teach and perform Byzantine chanting in Greek.

The first book, a more permanent translation of the [[Divine Liturgy]], is a sign of more works to come, including publications by faculty of the Theological College.
