LILYCHANT – ORTHODOX MUSIC SOFTWARE
Welcome to the music section of our website. Here you will find the Lilychant software. Lilychant is a front end for the popular Open Source Lilypond music score creation system. Lilychant is designed to allow the easy creation of musical scores for Orthodox chants. It is particularly effective when you have a number of different sets of words that all need to be set to the same music. Thus, once you have defined the musical pattern for one of the Troparion/Stikeron/Prokimenon or Canon melodies you can quickly set any new set of words and produce a full musical score in Lilypond format. From the Lilypond file you can then create pdf and midi files as required. These pages also contain a selection of melody pattern files for traditional Russian Obikhod and Kievan tones.
