Digital Chant Stand

AGES Initiatives generates the Digital Chant Stand (DCS), a website and accompanying app for iPad and iPhone that hosts an integrated online library of texts and music. This allows members of the congregation, clergy, and singers to access texts and music of upcoming services at home in order to practice.

Many parishes have implemented the use of the DCS for their choirs and chanters. Some parishes use printouts of the service texts, some employ tablets, some have removed their analogion completely. Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta has openly admitted to accessing DCS materials on his iPhone in order to perform a service.
