Finale and Different Worlds

St. Gregory Palamas Monastery in Etna, California

While I’m often inspired to share stories of people using Finale in the film industry, Hollywood is just one of many worlds in which Finale plays a part. This week I’d like to briefly feature yet another Californian’s use of Finale – albeit in a very different world.

Father Blaise is a Greek Orthodox monk at the St. Gregory Palamas Monastery in Etna, California.

He recently corresponded with a co-worker of mine to share his first reactions to his Finale 2012 upgrade:

“I am getting back to you, as promised, now that I have had some time to try the new Finale. I find the automatic lyric alignment particularly useful. Quick Look support is a huge timesaver too. Not to mention Unicode text.

I thought you might like to see the very first file I made with Unicode in Finale [2012]. It is an ancient Christian hymn (from the 5th century) in Romanian and Greek.”

I’d like to thank Father Blaise for his permission to share his example with you.
