In early summer of 2007, Archbishop JOB (Osacky) undertook a personal project, the musical arrangement of the service of Paraklisis (supplicatory canon to the Most-holy Theotokos) in four-part harmony, employing the Carpatho-Rusyn Sacred Chant (Cerkovnoje Prostopinije).  In the hymnographical spirit of "Come, all who love the feasts, let us form a choir..." several singers were recruited informally from among the various parishes in the Greater Chicago area to form a choir. 

The St. Alexis Men's Chorus of Chicago has released a CD of the Paraklisis arranged and directed by His Eminence, Archbishop JOB.  Proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to the Seminarian Scholarship Fund of the diocese of the Midwest.  The CDs are available at the candle desk and also in the Cathedral's Book Store for $15.  Stop by to purchase one!
