Welcome to the choir page at St. Maximus the Confessor Orthodox Church in Denton, Texas. Members of the St. Maximus choir sing at all services throughout a typical week. Choir rehearsals are held at least twice a month.

The St. Maximus Choir has been under the direction of Deacon Anthony Stokes since the parish's beginning in July 2001. The choir has seen many changes over the years, from the days of having three female and one male voice, to a choir of six male voices and four female voices, and our current eight member choir.  The men of St. Maximus joined together in 2009 to form Chantus Maximus, singing various services and concerts throughout the DFW Metroplex every year.

The music provided on this page is just a sample of what we sing at St. Maximus. All Liturgy texts are from the Priest's Service Book translated by Archbishop Dmitri of Dallas and the South, OCA. Other texts have been adapted to fit the same style of English. The Obikhod schematics are given in the settings that we sing at St. Maximus. They are not the only way that some of the tones may be sung. The Sunday Octoechos will eventually contain at least the introductory verses at Lord, I have cried and the Praises, as well as God is the Lord and the Matins Prokeimenon for Vigil, and the Liturgy Prokeimenon and Alleluia.

Please feel free to contact Deacon Anthony with any questions about the St. Maximus Choir or the settings found on this page -

Thank you and God bless!

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
