Eternal Memory! to Cantors, Choir Directors and Masters of Plainchant of Blessed Memory

NOTE: Visitors may post tributes to these cantors and choir directors as comments below, or request that other faithful departed servants of the churches of Carpatho-Rusyn tradition be listed here. Kindly include the necessary information in the comment post, with your request. We will also attempt to honor their work here on the blog, and in our ministry.
