Chanting Podium is where the chanters are stationed and usually located to the south. The chanters are often wear black outer cassock with wide angel-wing sleeves called exorason. You’ll find in a modern setting to have a choir in addition to having chanters.

Particularly in the Byzantine tradition, the cantor in charge of doing the music for a service is referred to as the protopsaltis (Gr.Πρωτοψάλτης). Chanters sing the many hymns called for during the Divine Services and the Divine Liturgy. A chanter must be knowledgeable about the ecclesiastical modes as well as the complex structure of the services.
