5.4 DCS

An integrated library of texts and music called DCS was developed for use on the Digital Chanters Stands at St. Nektarios Church in Charlotte. An installer/updater program (for Windows 7) was built, which allows choir members to access texts and music of upcoming services at home in order to practice.

Most parishes are not yet ready or able to adopt this digital solution. However, it is not uncommon for individual chanters to use e-readers in church instead of books and printouts. As a matter of fact, Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta has openly admitted to accessing eMatins materials on his iPhone in order to perform a service.

Forward thinking tablet users have experimented with various workarounds to use DCS on their devices. Plans are in the making to build an app for iPad that will access and display the DCS library.
