The Metropolitan Cantor Institute (MCI) is the musical website of the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh and the most useful online resource for all things concerning Ruthenian Byzantine chant [more properly: Prostopinije, Carpathian chant, or simply “plain chant”]. For the sake of convenience, the following is a list of links to some of the chant books and publications which can be found on the MCI and elsewhere.

NOTE: for works not in the public domain, refer to the MCI for determining fair use.
