Welcome to the website of James Chater, composer and musicologist. Its primary purpose is to present music written for liturgical use in the Orthodox Church, which you are free to download and use for church services. You can also find a list of my writings on music.
A secondary purpose of this site is to provoke, to make you think, and I hope to amuse you in the process. On the "Gratuitous" page you can find a few gratuitous, uncalled-for and (in)appropriate comments on various political and other subjects.
I have recently added lots of new content: music, articles, gratuitous opinions, etc. If you would like to be alerted to these additions, please send me an e-mail at jmchater"at"gmail.com (sorry, but to avoid spam I am indicating my e-mail address like this.)
