St-Basil's Hymnal

compiled by the Basilian Fathers


This music is assumed to be public domain in the USA. BEWARE: the modern-day recordings of that music are not!

At least 3 public domain editions are available on the internet as free downloads.
The 14th and 15th edition appear to be identical.
The engraving of the revised 18th edition is of much better quality (easier readable) than previous editions.
The scores of both editions are shown on the same work page.

Hymns in this listing are from the 1906 and the 1918 editions.
Scores are provided on the hymn pages. (see links below) To download:
bulletright-click on the pictures and "save target as" , or
bulletclick on the pictures to see full-size and then "save as".

There is some discrepancy in the numbering of the hymns in the 2 editions.
If the same title has different numbers in the 2 editions, this index listing references it under the 1906 numbering.

Many hymns have slight variations in musical setting between the 1906 and 1919 editions.

Some hymns appear in both 1906 and 1918 editions, but with different tunes by different composers.
About 50 titles are unique to the 1918 edition, in replacement of other hymns from the 1906 edition.
Those titles are listed separately on this page, below the 1906 index.

All hymns are presented with their scores as published in the hymnal. Many hymns from the 1906 edition were sequenced by Donald A Wyckoff. His original website no longer exists, but I was able to recover about 190 MIDI files from webarchive, however it appears that some of those files are corrupted and do not play at all. Also, many of these MIDI files have errors in melody, phrasing and tempo.  
Donald Wyckoff has contacted me since (May 2011) to let me know he has his St-Basil's Hymnal website up again  at 2 new servers: see THIS PAGE and THIS PAGE.

Some pages may show the media player, but music does not play because there is no MIDI file, or the old MIDI file was corrupted. I intend to complete those missing MIDIs later.
