Sacred Music Library

The Department of Sacred Music is pleased to offer free of charge to you the Liturgical Music PDF Library. For any comments or suggestions, please contact us.

When you look at music on the web site, and wish to download it to replace something else, please look at the footer of the page to see the revision number (Rev. 1, e.g.) or the date to make sure that it is the latest one out there, or at least later than the one you currently have.

The music listed below is in alphabetical order according to either Title, or Season (like Lent or Feast Days), or is Grouped according to type of hymns (such as Antiphons, Communion Hymns, etc.). If it is a Group heading, click on the title of the Group, for example, "Annunciation to the Theotokos," and then all the hymns in that group will unfold under the title.  Then click on the title of the hymn you wish to see or download.

To SEARCH for a particular hymn, you may either
     1) scroll down (or click on the letter of the section you'd like) and find it alphabetically; and click on the Title or the Group Heading, or
     2) type a few words of the Title or beginning words of the hymn in the Search Box and click Apply, or
     3) click on one of the Keywords in the table shown below, or in the right column next to each hymn.
       Then, you must click on the title of the hymn itself in order to open up the PDF file to view it or download it.
If you search for a hymn, or click on one of the Keywords, only hymns associated with that Search or Keyword will display. To go back to the full listing, click on the link "Show All Files." If you cannot find a particular hymn, please send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
