I know it's quite far from "typical" Byzantine chant... But, I think, still, this section is the best one for it:

Μatthew Tsamkiranis was born in 1925 in northern Greece. He got interested in Byzantine Music at a very young age and was initially tutored by Georgios Paraschoudes, who taught for 26 years Byzantine Music at the Athonite Academy.
In his 20's he became student of Athanasios Karamanis.
He was named Protopsaltis in 1951 and teacher of Byzantine Music in 1959. Tsamkiranis' teaching career spanned over three decades and among his students are prominent protopsaltes.
The incumbent Archon Protopsaltis of the Great Church of Christ, Panagiotis Neochorites was a student of Tsamkiranis for many years.
Tsamkiranis lost his son Dimitrios, during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 (Dimitrios Tsamkiranis was a commando officer KIA on July 22, 1974).
Matthew Tsamkiranis died in 2006, aged 81.
He's a genuine representative of the reserved & austere Patriarchal style.

Extract of the Calophonic heirmos from the Akathist Hymn to the Theotokos, in Mode 1st after Νicholas of Smyrna (+1887) chanted by Matthew Tsamkiranis (live recording, Kykkou Monastery, Cyprus):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyPl5Vixn6w

Ῥόδον τὸ Ἀμάραντον (κράτημα).
O Flower of an Unwithering plant (kratima).

Cherubic Hymn in Mode Pl. of 1st "Phrygian" (Pl. of 1st hard diatonic) after Peter "the sweet" Bereketis (+1715) chanted by Matthew Tsamkiranis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YePDyIPQhUE

Cherubic Hymn in Mode 3rd after Athanasios Karamanis (+2012) chanted by Tsamkiranis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cmTsecTxx8

Οἱ τὰ Χερουβεὶμ μυστικῶς εικονίζοντες καὶ τῇ Ζωοποιῷ Τριάδι τὸν Τρισάγιον ὕμνον προσᾴδοντες πᾶσαν τὴν βιωτικὴν ἀποθώμεθα μέριμναν ὠς τὸν βασιλέα τῶν ὃλων ὑποδεξόμενοι ταῖς ἀγγελικαῖς ἀοράτως δορυφορούμενον τάξεσιν· Ἀλληλούϊα.

We who mystically represent the Cherubim, and who sing to the Life-Giving Trinity the thrice-holy hymn, let us now lay aside all earthly cares that we may receive the King of all, escorted invisibly by the angelic orders; Alleluia.

Paschal Doxastikon in Mode Pl. of 1st after Athanasios Karamanis (+2012), chanted by Matthew Tsamkiranis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H18VUigdICA

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Ἀναστάσεως ἡμέρα, καὶ λαμπρυνθῶμεν τῇ πανηγύρει, καὶ ἀλλήλους περιπτυξώμεθα. Εἴπωμεν ἀδελφοί, καὶ τοῖς μισοῦσιν ἡμᾶς· Συγχωρήσωμεν πάντα τῇ Ἀναστάσει, καὶ οὕτω βοήσωμεν· Χριστὸς ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν, θανάτῳ θάνατον πατήσας, καὶ τοῖς ἐν τοῖς μνήμασι, ζωὴν χαρισάμενος.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
This is the day of Resurrection let us be radiant for the festival and let us embrace one another. Let us say, O brethren even to those that hate us; Let us forgive all things on the Resurrection, and thus let us cry: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.

This priest blesses water and you won't believe what happens next (wait for it).

I don't understand what's strange there?

Oh, nothing.  I just liked the little kid at the end.  Also, I'm not sure why they went up for a blessing twice, but I shared this mostly for the little kid.

Love it.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Some recording of the services in Cluj Napoca cathedral (Romania)

You have to put in the searching window of the channel "Liturghie", "Vecernie" or "Acatistul".
Having attented one of the services in this cathedral, I loved the chant (and, generally, the atmosphere).

The Great Doxology in Mode 3rd after Theodore Papaparaschou the Phocaeus (+1851) chanted by the nuns of the Holy Convent of the Holy Archangels, Pelion, Greece:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXPdKSzKhwE

Δόξα σοι τῷ δείξαντι τὸ φῶς.
Δόξα ἐν ὑψίστοις Θεῷ, καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη, ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία.
Ὑμνοῦμέν σε, εὐλογοῦμέν σε, προσκυνοῦμέν σε, δοξολογοῦμέν σε, εὐχαριστοῦμέν σοι, διὰ τὴν μεγάλην σου δόξαν.
Κύριε βασιλεῦ, ἐπουράνιε Θεέ, Πάτερ παντοκράτορ, Κύριε Υἱὲ μονογενές, Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, καὶ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα.
Κύριε ὁ Θεός, ὁ ἀμνὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ Πατρός, ὁ αἴρων τὴν ἁμαρτίαν τοῦ κόσμου, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς, ὁ αἴρων τὰς ἁμαρτίας τοῦ κόσμου.
Πρόσδεξαι τὴν δέησιν ἡμῶν, ὁ καθήμενος ἐν δεξιᾷ τοῦ Πατρός, καὶ ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Ὅτι σὺ εἶ μόνος Ἅγιος, σὺ εἶ μόνος Κύριος, Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, εἰς δόξαν Θεοῦ Πατρός. Ἀμήν.
Καθ’ ἑκάστην ἡμέραν εὐλογήσω σε, καὶ αἰνέσω τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος.
Καταξίωσον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ, ἀναμαρτήτους φυλαχθῆναι ἡμᾶς.
Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, ὁ Θεὸς τῶν Πατέρων ἡμῶν, καὶ αἰνετὸν καὶ δεδοξασμένον τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας. Ἀμήν.
Γένοιτο, Κύριε, τὸ ἔλεός σου ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς, καθάπερ ἠλπίσαμεν ἐπὶ σέ.
Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, δίδαξόν με τὰ δικαιώματά σου (x3)
Κύριε, καταφυγὴ ἐγενήθης ἡμῖν, ἐν γενεᾷ καὶ γενεᾷ. Ἐγὼ εἶπα΄ Κύριε, ἐλέησόν με, ἴασαι τὴν ψυχήν μου, ὅτι ἥμαρτόν σοι.
Κύριε, πρὸς σὲ κατέφυγον, δίδαξόν με τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸ θέλημά σου, ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ Θεός μου.
Ὅτι παρὰ σοὶ πηγὴ ζωῆς, ἐν τῷ φωτί σου ὀψόμεθα φῶς.
Παράτεινον τὸ ἔλεός σου τοῖς γινώσκουσί σε.
Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος Ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος Ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς (x3)
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Ἅγιος Ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος Ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος Ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

Glory to Thee, Who hast shown forth the light.
Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men.
We praise Thee, we bless Thee, we worship Thee, we glorify Thee, we give thanks to Thee for Thy great glory.
O Lord and King, heavenly God, Father Almighty; O Lord, the only-begotten Son Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.
O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sin of the world; have mercy upon us, Thou that takest away the sins of the world.
Accept our prayer, Thou that sittest on the right hand of the Father, and have mercy upon us.
For Thou only art Holy; Thou only art Lord, Jesus Christ, in the glory of God the Father, Amen.
Every day will I bless Thee and will I praise Thy Name forever and ever.
Strengthen us, O Lord, this day to be kept sinless.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, God of our fathers, and praised and glorified is Thy Name forever, Amen.
Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we trust on Thee.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us (x3)
O Lord, Thou hast been a refuge for us from generation to generation. I said, Lord have mercy upon me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against Thee.
O Lord, to Thee have I fled; teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God.
For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light we shall see light.
Extend Thy mercy unto them that know Thee.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us (x3)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Both now and forever, and from all ages to all ages, Amen.
Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us.

Well, it's not typical Byzantine chant, but it's neither Slavonic chant.

The first all-night vigil celebrated at ss Barnabas & Ilarion's church, Metropolis of Morphou, Cyprus, presided over by the Metropolitan of Morphou, Neophytos, on the occasion of the canonization of st. Iakovos (Tsalikis) of Evia (Euboea) by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
HE Neophytos is a spiritual child of the st. and knew him very well personally (note that from 1:47:58 - 2:20:15 the life of the saint is presented by the rector of the church):

Idiomelon (Samoglasen) in Mode Grave diatonic, from the ninth hour of the Royal Hours, after James the Protopsaltis (+1800), chanted by the Byzantine choir "Romanos o Melodos" of Limassol, Cyprus (live recording, 12/22/2017):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGkCrs8yvRQ

Ἐξεπλήττετο ὁ Ἡρῴδης, ὁρῶν τῶν Μάγων τὴν εὐσέβειαν, καὶ τῶ θυμῶ vικώμενος, τοῦ ἔτους ἠκριβολόγει τὸ διάστημα. Μητέρες ἠτεκvοῦντο, καὶ ἡ ἄωρος ἡλικία τῶv βρεφώv, πικρῶς κατεθερίζετο, μαζοὶ ἐξηραίvοντο, καὶ πόροι γάλακτος συνεστέλλοντο. Μέγα ἢv τὸ δεινόν! διὸ εὐσεβῶς πιστοὶ συνελθοvτες, προσκυνήσωμεv τοῦ Χριστοῦ τὴν γέvνησιν.

Verily, Herod was overtaken by astonishment when he saw the piety of the Magi. And having been overridden with wrath, he began to inquire of them about the time. He robbed the mothers of their children and ruthlessly reaped the tender bodies of the babes. And the breasts dried up, and the springs of milk failed. Great then was the calamity. Wherefore, being gathered, O believers, in true worship, let us adore the Nativity of Christ.

Ode Νinth (Megalynarion-Magnificat) from the Iambic Odes of the Nativity of our Lord in the flesh, in Mode 1st, chanted by the Byzantine choir "Romanos o Melodos" of Limassol, Cyprus (live recording, 12/22/2017):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUYoL6dWZ7M

-Μεγάλυνον ψυχή μου, τὴν τιμιωτέραν, καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν τῶν ἄνω στρατευμάτων
-Magnify, O my soul, her who is greater in honour and more glorious than the hosts on high!
Μυστήριον ξένον, ὁρῶ καὶ παράδοξον! οὐρανὸν τὸ Σπήλαιον, θρόνον Χερουβικόν, τὴν Παρθένον, τὴν φάτνην χωρίον, ἐν ᾧ ἀνεκλίθη ὁ ἀχώρnτος, Χριστὸς ὁ Θεός, ὅν ἀνυμνοῦντες μεγαλύνομεν.
I behold a strange, most glorious mystery! The cave is Heaven! The cherubic throne-the Virgin! The manger-the place where Christ lays, the uncontainable God, Whom we magnify in hymn!

-Μεγάλυνον ψυχή μου, τὸν ἐκ τῆς Παρθένου, Θεὸν σαρκὶ τεχθέντα
-Magnify, O my soul, God born in the flesh, from the virgin!
Ἐξαίσιον δρόμον, ὁρῶντες οἱ Μάγοι, ἀσυνήθους νέου ἀστέρος ἀρτιφαοῦς, οὐρανίου ὑπερλάμποντος, Χριστὸν Βασιλέα ἐτεκμήραντο, ἐν γῇ γεννηθέντα Βηθλεέμ, εἰς σωτηρίαν ἡμῶν.
The Magi saw a new, uncharted star, following an unexpected course. Its brightness surpassed every star in heaven. It foretold the Messiah's birth: Christ, the King, born on earth in Bethlehem, for our salvation.

-Σήμερον ἡ Παρθένος, τίκτει τὸν Δεσπότην, ἔνδον ἐν τῷ Σπηλαίῳ
-Today the Virgin bears the Master within the cave!
Νεηγενὲς Μάγων λεγόντων, παιδίον Ἄναξ, οὗ ἀστὴρ ἐφάνη, ποῦ ἐστίν, εἰς γὰρ ἐκείνου προσκύνησιν ἥκομεν. Μανεὶς ὁ Ἡρῴδης ἐταράττετο, Χριστὸν ἀνελεῖν, ὁ θεομάχος φρυαττόμενος.
"Where is the newborn Infant-King? We have seen His star," the Magi said. "We have come to worship Him." Godless Herod trembled with fury, in his raging madness he plotted to kill Christ.

-Μάγοι καὶ Ποιμένες, ἦλθον προσκυνῆσαι, Χριστὸν τὸν γεννηθέντα, ἐν Βηθλεὲμ τῇ πόλει
-Magi and shepherds came to worship Christ, born in the City of Bethlehem.
Ἠκρίβωσε χρόνον Ἡρῴδης ἀστέρος, οὗ ταῖς ἡγεσίαις οἱ Μάγοι ἐν Βηθλεέμ, προσκυνοῦσι Χριστῷ σὺν δώροις, ὑφ' οὗ πρὸς Πατρίδα ὁδηγούμενοι, δεινὸν παιδοκτόνον, ἐγκατέλιπον παιζόμενον.
Herod inquired where the star appeared which had led the Magi to Bethlehem, but after they worshipped Christ with gifts, that same star led them back to their own land, confounding their pursuer, that godless murderer of children.

-Μεγάλυνον ψυχή μου, τὸν ἐν τῷ Σπηλαίῳ, τεχθέντα Βασιλέα
-Magnify, O my soul, The King born in the cave!
Στέργειν μὲν ἡμᾶς, ὡς ἀκίνδυνον φόβῳ, ῥᾷον σιωπήν, τῷ πόθῳ δὲ Παρθένε, ὕμνους ὑφαίνειν, συντόνως τεθηγμένους, ἐργῶδές ἐστιν, ἀλλὰ καὶ Μήτηρ σθένος, ὅση πέφυκεν ἡ προαίρεσις δίδου.
For us it is easier in fear to love silence, for this is without danger, but it is hard indeed with love to weave songs harmoniously composed, O Virgin. But do you, O Mother, give us strength that we may fulfil our intent.

-Μεγάλυνον ψυχή μου, τὴν τιμιωτέραν, καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν τῶν ἄνω στρατευμάτων
-Magnify, O my soul, her who is greater in honour and more glorious than the hosts on high!
Μυστήριον ξένον, ὁρῶ καὶ παράδοξον! οὐρανὸν τὸ Σπήλαιον, θρόνον Χερουβικόν, τὴν Παρθένον, τὴν φάτνην χωρίον, ἐν ᾧ ἀνεκλίθη ὁ ἀχώρnτος, Χριστὸς ὁ Θεός, ὅν ἀνυμνοῦντες μεγαλύνομεν.
I behold a strange, most glorious mystery! The cave is Heaven! The cherubic throne-the Virgin! The manger-the place where Christ lays, the uncontainable God, Whom we magnify in hymn!

The hymn chanted in the Great Compline on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening of the Great Lent, in Mode Pl. of 4th Triphonic (Holy Cross Chapel at Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology; the English arrangement is by Gabriel Cremeens):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=4aGtHeDQmPE

«Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.»

"Lord of the Powers, be with us; for in times of distress, we have no other help but You. Lord of the Powers, have mercy on us."

The same hymn chanted by the monks from the Holy Monastery of Simonopetra in Mode Nenano (Pl. of 2nd Triphonic):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFW-tYjOXfM

Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Αἰνεῖτε τὸν Θεόν ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις αὐτοῦ· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν στερώματι τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ.
Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐπὶ ταῖς δυναστείαις αὐτοῦ· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς μεγαλωσύνης αὐτοῦ.
Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Aἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.
Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν τυμπάνῳ και χορῷ· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνων.
Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Aἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις· αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ· πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.
Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, μεθ' ἡμῶν γενοῦ· ἄλλον γὰρ ἐκτός σου βοηθόν, ἐν θλίψεσιν οὐκ ἔχομεν. Κύριε τῶν Δυνάμεων, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.
Aἰνεῖτε τὸν Θεόν ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις αὐτοῦ· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν ἐν στερώματι τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ.

^^ it's one of my favourite hymns :) , actually in every chant and arrangment (they're always good, and love the refrain). Here it's in:
Romanian (it reminds your first link in some way)
Arabic

Romanian (it reminds your first link in some way)
Arabic
The Romanian is indeed an arrangement of the Byzantine hymn in Pl. of 4th mode, the Arabic one is identical to the Greek (Pl. of 2nd Mode).

The First Kontakion of the Akathist to the Most Holy Theotokos, chanted by the "Greek Byzantine Choir (ELBYX)" under Lykourgos Angelopoulos (+2014) in Mode Pl. of 4th, according to the ancient tradition:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70gp3YepdLg

Τῇ ὑπερμάχῳ στρατηγῷ τὰ νικητήρια,
Ὡς λυτρωθεῖσα τῶν δεινῶν εὐχαριστήρια,
Ἀναγράφω σοι ἡ Πόλις σου Θεοτόκε.
Ἀλλ᾿ ὡς ἔχουσα τὸ κράτος ἀπροσμάχητον,
Ἐκ παντοίων με κινδύνων ἐλευθέρωσον,
Ἵνα κράζω σοι· Χαῖρε, Νύμφη ἀνύμφευτε.

To Thee, the Champion Leader,
we Thy servants dedicate a feast of victory
and of thanksgiving as ones rescued out of sufferings, O Theotokos.
But as Thou art one with might which is invincible,
from all dangers that can be do Thou deliver us,
that we may cry to Thee: Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!

You mean the Arabic is the original melody? Could be, the first theoretician of the Byzantine modal musical system is st. John of Damascus after all :P

Kontakion from the canon of st. Andrew of Crete (Thursday in the 5th week of Great Lent), after the Protopsaltis of Smyrna, Nicholas Georgiou (+1887) in Mode Pl. of 2nd, chanted by fr. Thomas (+2016) of the Thomades Brotherhood, Mount Athos (recorded live, duration approx. 15 minutes):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrUMa-hllWo

Ψυχή μου, ψυχή μου, ἀνάστα, τί καθεύδεις τό τέλος ἐγγίζει καί μέλλεις θορυβεῖσθαι· ἀνάνηψον οὖν, ἵνα φείσηταί σου Χριστός ὁ Θεός, ὁ πανταχοῦ παρών καί τά πάντα πληρῶν.

My soul, my soul, arise! Why are you sleeping? The end is drawing near, and you will be confounded. Awake, then, and be watchful, that Christ our God may spare you, Who is everywhere present and fills all things.

Love it! That's a good reminder that Matins of Thursday in the 5th week of Great Lent are in fact a vigil (like the Matins of Saturday Akathist plus matins of the Holy Week days) :)

But it's typical Eastern Slavonic (more exactly: Kievan) chant, not Byzantine, even not Bulgarian one.

No, you use Byzantine chant (flavoured wiith your own tradition) plus some Eastern Slavonic (Russian) choral stuff.
