St. Romanos the Melodist SocietyThe St. Romanos the Melodist Society produces and publishes English language music of the Russian Orthodox Church. This website is the online extension of A Church Singer's Companion, a project started in 1998 with the blessing of Metropolitan (then Archbishop) Laurus. Inspired by the Russian Sputnik Psalomshchika, the Companion is envisioned to contain the music necessary for every service a parish choir might need to sing, while staying simple enough so that any parish choir can sing it.

The St. Romanos Society produces music in both printed and recorded formats, and conducts seminars and workshops on the proper performance of that music. The Society is a sodality of Holy Apostles Orthodox Church, an English mission parish currently worshipping in Beltsville, Maryland.

Pray For and Visit the Aged – "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction."

Become a member!  Pledge your financial support for Holy Apostles! –This is the time when you can be part of God’s providence for Holy Apostles.  As we make our plans for next year's budget, your part of that is to make a financial pledge to the parish for year.  The age-old Christian standard is 10%, the tithe.  Those who do this receive blessings they can’t count, above and beyond any money they contribute.  Sts. Joachim and Anna, the parents of the Mother of God, gave one-third to the poor, one-third to the temple, and lived on the remaining one third.  Can one estimate the blessing it was to bring the Mother of God into the world?  Pay for and support your parish.
