The Order of Divine Services, 2nd edition 2009

The Order of Divine Services according to the usage of the Russian Orthodox Church is a must-have resource for all minor clergy and choir directors. It explains the variable (movable) parts of vespers, matins, the hours, and the divine liturgy, and how they change depending on factors such as the rank of the feast, whether you’re in a forefeast or afterfeast period, and others. This is a complicated subject, but this handy reference boils it down into clear pieces. You won’t learn liturgics from this book alone, but you probably won’t learn liturgics without it.

Feast Ranks and Rubrical Signs: You may often run into symbols, like, 🕀, 🕁, 🕂, 🕃, and 🕃, associated with saints and feasts. This page tells you what they mean. (Note: These symbols can be found in the Unicode specification, as seen here.)
