Links for Byzantine Music
« on: July 27, 2007, 01:16:51 PM »

This site is great, because it has (amongst its files) some of the older and more traditional books for Chanting in the Patriarchal Style.

http://graeca.canto.ru/upload/MontrealPsaltiki/

The guy who runs the site sounds like a terrific Cantor, and is a student of a very traditional Cantor himself.

This collection of links is likely a bit broader in scope than cleveland intended with this thread - and my apologies for that. It's the remains of a resource thread on chant that I had created at the old CAF forum, but that regretably disappeared in the effort to rewrite history over there. I have not checked the links of late (would have, but I had to convert the coding to post it and that took longer than I expected), so I'm hopeful that most remain good. (Also, please excuse what may sound a bit basic and patronizing in the tone of the opening text - it was written for the benefit of an audience that would have included many unfamiliar with our liturgical music heritage, tradition, and style, not for one of primarily Eastern and Oriental Christians.)

A variety of musical forms are used in the Eastern & Oriental Churches.

Most Eastern and Oriental Churches, Catholic and Orthodox, perform liturgical music a capella.  As most of these Churches have their origins within an ethno-cultural framework, the peculiar form that each uses tends to be rooted in the culture and heritage from which its faithful originally came. Thus, Byzantines of the Greek Tradition (e.g., Albanians) utilize a different style than will Byzantines of the Slav Tradition (e.g. Ruthenians); the same is true of Antiochene Churches of East Syriac versus West Syriac Traditions.

Even within Traditions, there are differences, e.g. between Ruthenians and Ukrainians, both Byzantine Slavic Churches; prostopinije is used most often by the former, while kyevan chant is most used by the latter.

Except in instances where a Church has been influenced by external liturgical praxis (e.g., latinization), few if any differences should be observable between the musical forms used in Catholic or Orthodox Churches from the same heritage.

Arabic chant, used in Melkite Catholic and Antiochene Orthodox Churches has similarities to Islamic vocalizations, the latter having borrowed from the pre-existing Arabic Christian forms. The vocalization style used in Christ's time is likely most closely approximated by the Aramaic and Syriac chant of Maronites, Syriac Catholics and Orthodox, and Chaldean Catholics and their Assyrian counterparts, as well as the styles of Hebrew chant preserved by Jews in their worship. See Jewish Liturgical Music

For audio clips of Eastern and Oriental liturgical music, visit these:

Eastern Catholic Liturgical Hymns is a diverse collection of liturgical texts and hymns from a variety of Eastern Catholic Churches, gathered by Donald Wyckoff (who has recently added traditional Latin Rite music to the site). Most of the material here is, unfortunately, instrumental rather than in its traditional a capella presentation, but it does offer a sense of the hymnody. Be patient, as the site is slow to load.

Hymns from the Byzantine Liturgical Tradition is a wonderful range of music from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North America's beautiful website.

Choir Chant of the Byzantine Slovak Catholic Church was recorded by a Byzantine Slovak Catholic parish in Bratislavia.

Byzantine Melkite Liturgical Chant is offered at the site of the Melkite Greek-Catholic Eparchy of Australia. The page is, unfortunately, written in Arabic, which I can neither read nor speak. The links, however, are obvious - click on any of them to listen.

Plainchant in the form of Ruthenian prostopinije is beautifully presented at the website of the American Carpatho-Rusyn Orthodox Diocese.

Georgian Chant (for which I used to have a great link, alas no longer functional) is reportedly the oldest Byzantine liturgical form. Regretably, to the best of my knowledge, there are presently no working chant links available on-line for this form. You can, however, hear an audio file of a traditional instrumental rendition of Shen Kar Venati - the Cherubic Hymn

Coptic Hymnody for the Feast of the Resurrection was recorded by the Higher Institute of Coptic Studies.

Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Hymns were recorded by St. Mary's Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Church in Los Angeles.

The Anaphora of Addai & Mari is the Mystery of the Eucharist from the Holy Liturgy of the Assyrian Church of the East, chanted in Classical Eddessan Syriac. This Anaphora is unique among those of the Apostolic Churches in that it recites no explicit narrative of the Words of Eucharistic Institution.

Maronite Music on the old (but presently still available) website of Saint Jude Maronite Catholic parish in Orlando, FL (the Maronite Liturgical Chant recorded by the parish choir appears to no longer be available on the site - these are audio clips from a recording by a Maronite nun)

Podoben, a site belonging to Saint Nicholas OCA Cathedral in Washington (DC), is entirely devoted to Eastern Christian music.

Mixed Liturgical Chants, also at Saint Nicholas' site, offers a fascinating array of liturgical midis, primarily, but not entirely, from the Byzantine Slav traditions - including several (Serb, Bulgarian, and Ukrainian) for which I hadn't posted links above.

Russian Old Believer Znamenny Chant is an isolated link from a site offering a broad selection of Russian Old Believer chant. The main site is, unfortunately in Russian, making it difficult (let's say impossible) for linguistically challenged Russophiles like myself to navigate.

Russian Liturgical Music is a presentation of Saint Michael's Russian Greek-Catholic Church in New York City.

Orthodox Music Downloads are offered at Ivan Moody's deservedly renowned UK site.

Armenian Liturgical Chant can be sampled by clicking on any of the album covers.

Many years,

Neil

ok- at a quick check, the Maronite, Ethiopian, and Georgian links are the only inoperative ones. I'll try and find substitutes for them, but I don't have much hope for the Georgian

Instead of Downloading the Video Clips with the Hymns ,Just record The songs, or Hymns  With the Free Internet Radio recorder  Mp-3  My Mp-3 in wave or Mp-3 files...They also have a payed version of the recorder ..The free one is complete ,works well for me..The payed version  gives more recording formats one can record in ....

Russian nuns performin byzantine chant. I've known their recordings for years, but here is something quite new:
http://www.sestry.ru/church/content/masterskie/singing/sing/disk6 - Paschal chant mostly in Church Slavonic and some in Greek, but this time they based on the works of Constantine Papayanis, so you can notice some difference in chanting of Paschal Canon in comparison with this (sung also by these nuns and based on byzantine melodies too).

I can easily say it's one of the best byzantine chanting in Church Slavonic I've ever heard.

Very nice thread here.

This Church in Cyprus has a particularly useful website for anyone wanting more material about Byzantine chant in Greek or English.
Its english translations complement those of Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Boston and Saint Antony Monastery of Arizona:

http://www.psaltika.ru/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=47&Itemid=100

A Russian byzantine choir (it's quite rare, isn't it?) "Psaltika" from Moscow. I recommend especially the first folder (Рождественские песнопения) and the first hymn of it as there are very few recordings of Nativity Canon in Church Slavonic sung in byzantine way. The last folder is also very nice as it contains all 8 Sunday troparions (I mean, all 8 tones).

Doxastikon of the Praises for the feast of St. George Spring is here (composition of Petros Philanthides) chanted by a choir of Thessalonian chanters (plagal of 1st):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1F2U0OSM24

Ἀνέτειλε τὸ ἔαρ, δεῦτε εὐωχηθῶμεν, ἐξέλαμψεν ἡ Ἀνάστασις Χριστοῦ, δεῦτε εὐφρανθῶμεν ἡ τοῦ Ἀθλοφόρου μνήμη, τοὺς πιστοὺς φαιδρύνουσα ἀνεδείχθη· διὸ φιλέορτοι, δεῦτε μυστικῶς αὐτὴν πανηγυρίσωμεν· οὗτος γὰρ ὡς καλὸς στρατιώτης, ἠνδρίσατο κατὰ τῶν τυράννων, καὶ τούτους κατῄσχυνε, μιμητὴς γενόμενος τοῦ πάθους τοῦ Σωτῆρος Χριστοῦ, οὐκ ἠλέησε τὸ σκεῦος τὸ πήλινον τὸ ἑαυτοῦ, ἀλλὰ γυμνὸν ἀνεχάλκευσεν, ἐν βασάνοις αὐτὸ προσαμειβόμενος, αὐτῷ βοήσωμεν· Ἀθλοφόρε ἱκέτευε, εἰς τὸ σωθῆναι τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

Psalm 102 (Bless the Lord, O my soul) chanted according to the Hagiorite tradition (plagal of 4th) by a choir of fresher students of the Aristotelian Uni of Thessaloniki:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SC0zFbfRNk

Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τόν Κύριον, Εὐλογητός εἶ Κύριε.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τὸν Κύριον καί, πάντα τὰ ἐντός μου, τὸ ὄνομα τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ·.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου, τὸν Κύριον καὶ μὴ ἐπιλανθάνου πάσας τὰς ἀνταποδόσεις αὐτοῦ·
τὸν εὐιλατεύοντα πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας σου, τὸν ἰώμενον πάσας τὰς νόσους σου·
τὸν λυτρούμενον ἐκ φθορᾶς τὴν ζωήν σου, τὸν στεφανοῦντά σε ἐν ἐλέει καὶ οἰκτιρμοῖς·
τὸν ἐμπιπλῶντα ἐν ἀγαθοῖς τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν σου, ἀνακαινισθήσεται ὡς ἀετοῦ ἡ νεότης σου.
Ποιῶν ἐλεημοσύνας ὁ Κύριος καὶ κρῖμα πᾶσι τοῖς ἀδικουμένοις.
'Eγνώρισε τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ τῷ Μωυσῇ, τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὰ θελήματα αὐτοῦ.
Οἰκτίρμων καὶ ἐλεήμων ὁ Κύριος, μακρόθυμος καὶ πολυέλεος· οὐκ εἰς τέλος ὀργισθήσεται, οὐδὲ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα μηνιεῖ·
οὐ κατὰ τὰς ἀνομίας ἡμῶν ἐποίησεν ἡμῖν, οὐδὲ κατὰ τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν ἀνταπέδωκεν ἡμῖν
ὅτι κατὰ τὸ ὕψος τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἐκραταίωσε Κύριος τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν·
καθόσον ἀπέχουσιν ἀνατολαὶ ἀπὸ δυσμῶν, ἐμάκρυνεν ἀφ᾿ ἡμῶν τὰς ἀνομίας ἡμῶν.
Καθὼς οἰκτείρει πατὴρ υἱούς, ᾠκτείρησε Κύριος τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἔγνω τὸ πλάσμα ἡμῶν, ἐμνήσθη ὅτι χοῦς ἐσμεν.
ἄνθρωπος, ὡσεὶ χόρτος αἱ ἡμέραι αὐτοῦ· ὡσεὶ ἄνθος τοῦ ἀγροῦ, οὕτως ἐξανθήσει·
ὅτι πνεῦμα διῆλθεν ἐν αὐτῷ, καὶ οὐχ ὑπάρξει καὶ οὐκ ἐπιγνώσεται ἔτι τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ.
Τὸ δὲ ἔλεος τοῦ Κυρίου ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος ἐπὶ τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτόν
καὶ ἡ δικαιοσύνη αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ υἱοῖς υἱῶν τοῖς φυλάσσουσι τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ καὶ μεμνημένοις τῶν ἐντολῶν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ποιῆσαι αὐτάς.
Κύριος ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἡτοίμασε τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ πάντων δεσπόζει.
Εὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πάντες οἱ ἄγγελοι αὐτοῦ, δυνατοὶ ἰσχύϊ ποιοῦντες τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς φωνῆς τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ.
Εὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πᾶσαι αἱ δυνάμεις αὐτοῦ, λειτουργοὶ αὐτοῦ  οἱ ποιοῦντες τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ.
Eὐλογεῖτε τὸν Κύριον, πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ, ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ τῆς δεσποτείας αὐτοῦ.
Eὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου, τὸν Κύριον.
Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ Νῦν καὶ ἀεί καί εἰς τούς αἰώνας τῶν αἰώνων Ἀμήν.
Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου τὸν Κύριον καί, πάντα τὰ ἐντός μου, τὸ ὄνομα τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ.

Ode 7-Irmos of the Transfiguration Katavasia (Grave mode)
Now the unheard of has been heard
Chanted by fr. Panteleimon Kartsonas

Νῦν τὰ ἀνήκουστα ἠκούσθη, ὁ ἀπάτωρ γὰρ Υἱός ἐκ τῆς Παρθένου, τῇ πατρώᾳ φωνῇ, ἐνδόξως μαρτυρεῖται, οἷα Θεὸς καὶ ἄνθρωπος, ὁ αὐτὸς εἰς τοὺς αἰώνας.

Third Antiphon of the Transiguration (Grave Mode)
(Chanted by the Maistores of Psaltic Art)

-Τὰ ἐλέη σου, Κύριε, εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἄσομαι.
Μετεμορφώθης ἐν τῷ ὄρει Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, δείξας τοῖς Μαθηταῖς σου τὴν δόξαν σου, καθὼς ἠδυναντο. Λάμψον καὶ ἡμῖν τοῖς ἁμαρτωλοῖς, τὸ φῶς σου τὸ ἀΐδιον, πρεσβείαις τῆς Θεοτόκου, φωτοδότα δόξα σοι.

Ἦχος Βαρύς

Ὁπλιτικῆς φάλαγγος οἰκεῖον μέλος
ὁ τοῦ βάρους σὺ κλῆσιν εἰληφῶς φέρεις.
Ἧχον τὸν ἁπλοῦν τὸν βάρους ἐπώνυμον
ὁ τοὺς λογισμοὺς ἐν βοαῖς μισῶν φιλεῖ.
Ἀνδρῶν δὲ ἄσμα δευτερότριτε βρέμεις.
Ὧν ποικίλος δὲ τοὺς ἁπλούς ἔχεις φίλους.

http://mtv.com.lb/Religious_Specials - lots of byzantine chant in Arabic - live recordings (broadcasts) from church services, concerts from Antiochian Orthodox and Greek Catholic (Melchite) Churches... There are also plenty of Maronite hymns and services.
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

The Byzantine Music ensemble "En Chordais" (Ἐν Xορδαῖς) chant the dogmatic theotokion (actually it's not the whole hymn) The universal glory composed by a famous Ottoman-Greek composer of secular music (18th c.), Zaharya Hanende (Ζαχαρίας ὁ χανεδές, Zechariah the melodist) in Mode 1st:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDxfORfD5-s

Τήν παγκόσμιον δόξαν,
τήν ἐξ ἀνθρώπων σπαρεῖσαν,
καί τόν Δεσπότην τεκοῦσαν,
τήν ἐπουράνιον πύλην,
ὑμνήσωμεν Μαρίαν τήν Παρθένον,
τῶν Ἀσωμάτων τό ἆσμα,
καί τῶν πιστῶν τό ἐγκαλλώπισμα ὑμνήσωμεν

Emmanuel Hadzimarkos (who is regarded one of the sweetest voices and best chanters of Byzantine music in modern Greece, 1927-2013) chants verses from The Great Doxology in Mode 2nd (Iakovos the Protopsaltis) in 1959 (live recording). His tempo is impeccable:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mROGVrPiXg

Δόξα Σοι τῷ δείξαντι τὸ φῶς
Δόξα ἐν ὑψίστοις Θεῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία
Κύριε Βασιλεῦ, ἐπουράνιε Θεέ, Πάτερ παντοκράτορ, Κύριε Υἱὲ μονογενές, Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, καὶ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα
Πρόσδεξαι τὴν δέησιν ἡμῶν, ὁ καθήμενος ἐν δεξιᾷ τοῦ Πατρός, καὶ ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς
Καθ' ἑκάστην ἡμέραν εὐλογήσω σε, καὶ αἰνέσω τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος
Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, ὁ Θεὸς τῶν Πατέρων ἡμῶν, καὶ αἰνετὸν καὶ δεδοξασμένον τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας. Ἀμήν
Κύριε, πρὸς σὲ κατέφυγον· δίδαξόν με τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸ θέλημά σου, ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ Θεός μου.

Does Serbian Chant goes here or in Slavic thread? I mean, Bulgarians, Macedonians and Serbs are Slavs, but we use variants of Byzantine Chant?

On this site you have detailed analysis of Serbian Chant, with notes, partitures, and instructions. Also there are examples of all melodies in Churhc Slavonic and English. :) Good work.

Βηθλεὲμ ἑτοιμάζου· εὐτρεπιζέσθω ἡ φάτνη· τὸ Σπήλαιον δεχέσθω, ἡ ἀλήθεια ἦλθεν· ἡ σκιὰ παρέδραμε· καὶ Θεὸς ἀνθρώποις, ἐκ Παρθένου πεφανέρωται, μορφωθείς τὸ καθ' ἡμᾶς, καὶ θεώσας τὸ πρόσλημμα. Διὸ Ἀδὰμ ἀνανεοῦται σὺν τῇ Εὔᾳ, κράζοντες· Ἐπὶ γῆς εὐδοκία ἐπεφάνη, σῶσαι τὸ γένος ἡμῶν.

Bethlehem, make ready, let the manger be beautifully adorned; cave, receive, the Truth is come! The shadow has passed away, and God has appeared to men out of the Virgin, having been formed like us and deifying the flesh. Wherefore, Adam is renewed with Eve, crying out: Goodwill has appeared on earth to save our race.

Mode Pl. 4th
Δόξα... Καὶ νῦν...
Τάδε λέγει Ἰωσὴφ πρὸς τὴν Παρθένον· Μαρία, τὶ τὸ δρᾶμα τοῦτο, ὃ ἐν σοὶ τεθέαμαι; ἀπορῶ καὶ ἐξίσταμαι, καὶ τὸν νοῦν καταπλήττομαι! Λάθρα τοίνυν ἀπ' ἐμοῦ, γενοῦ ἐν τάχει.

Glory...Now and ever...
Thus spoke Joseph to the Virgin: "Mary, what is this doing that I behold in you? I am perplexed and astonished, and my mind is horrified! Therefore, secretly and swiftly be gone from me. Mary, what is this doing that I see in you? Instead of honor, shame; instead of gladness, sorrow; instead of praise, you have brought me reproof. No longer shall I bear the reproach of men, for from the priests, out of the temple of the Lord, I have taken you as one who is blameless; and what does this appear to be?"

Φάτνῃ πενιχρᾷ Υἱὸς μονογενής, κείμενος ὁρᾶται βροτός· καὶ σπαργάνοις πλέκεται, ὁ τῆς δόξης Κύριος, καὶ Μάγους ἀστὴρ μηνύει, εἰς αὐτοῦ προσκύνησιν, καὶ ἡμεῖς μελῳδοῦμεν·Τριὰς Ἁγία, σῶσον τὰς ψυχὰς ἠμών.

This is our God, none other can be compared to Him; it is He Who was born of the Virgin and dwelt among men. Laid in a poor manger, the only-begotten Son appeared as mortal man, and the Lord of glory is wrapped in swaddling clothes. The star calls the Magi to His adoration. Let us also chant: Holy Trinity, save our souls.

Glory to the Father nad to the Son and the Holy Spirit

Tell us, Joseph, how is it that you bring to Bethlehem, great with Child, the Maiden whom you have taken from the sanctuary? "I have searched the prophets," said he, "and have received tidings from an angel, and I am persuaded that Mary shall ineffably give birth to God, Whom Magi from the East shall come to worship, doing homage with precious gifts." Lord, Who was incarnate for our sake, glory to You.

Verses from Psalm 136, Μode 3rd (after Khourmouzios the archiver), chanted by the Choir of the Pancypriot Union of Church Chanters:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSGnGVt44cw
Επί τῶν ποταμῶν Βαβυλῶνος ἐκεῖ ἐκαθίσαμεν καὶ ἐκλαύσαμεν ἐν τῷ μνησθῆναι ἡμᾶς τῆς Σιών. Ἀλληλούια.
Ἐπὶ ταῖς ἰτέαις ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ἐκρεμάσαμεν τὰ ὄργανα ἡμῶν· Ἀλληλούια.
Πῶς ᾄσωμεν τὴν ᾠδὴν Κυρίου ἐπὶ γῆς ἀλλοτρίας; Ἀλληλούια.
Ἐὰν ἐπιλάθωμαί σου, ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ἐπιλησθείη ἡ δεξιά μου· Ἀλληλούια.
Κολληθείη ἡ γλῶσσά μου τῷ λάρυγγί μου, ἐὰν μή σου μνησθῶ, Ἀλληλούια.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. Alleluia.
We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it. Alleluia.
How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land? Alleluia.
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill. Alleluia.
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, Alleluia.

Verses from the same psalm, chanted by the Nun Mariam, Mode 3rd:

Matins Doxastikon of Palm Sunday after Thrasyboulos Stanitsas in Mode Plagal of 2nd (Demetrios Nikou, live recording): 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oODKVAM-JoU
Πρὸ ἓξ ἡμερῶν τοῦ Πάσχα, ἦλθεν Ἰησοῦς εἰς Βηθανίαν, καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ οἱ Μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ, λέγοντες αὐτῷ· Κύριε, ποῦ θέλεις, ἑτοιμάσωμέν σοι φαγεῖν τὸ Πάσχα; ὁ δὲ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτούς· Ἀπέλθετε εἰς τὴν ἀπέναντι κώμην, καὶ εὑρήσετε ἄνθρωπον, κεράμιον ὕδατος βαστάζοντα· ἀκολουθήσατε αὐτῷ, καὶ τῷ οἰκοδεσπότῃ εἴπατε· ὁ Διδάσκαλος λέγει· Πρὸς σὲ ποιῶ τὸ Πάσχα, μετὰ τῶν Μαθητῶν μου.

Six days before the Feast of Passover Jesus entered Bethany. His disciples asked Him: "Where should we prepare for Thee to eat the Passover?" He answered "When you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house which he enters and tell the master of the house: The Teacher says to you: Here I shall eat the Passover with my disciples."

The Troparion of the Bridegroom Services "Behold the Bridegroom comes" in Mode Plagal of the 4th triphonic (Panaghiotis Neochoritis, live recording):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypbztPUFevc
Ἰδού ὁ Νυμφίος ἔρχεται ἐν τῷ μέσῳ τῆς νυκτός καί μακάριος ὁ δοῦλος, ὅν εὑρήσει γρηγοροῦντα· ἀνάξιος δέ πάλιν, ὅν εὑρήσει ῥαθυμοῦντα. Βλέπε οὖν ψυχή μου, μή τῷ ὕπνῳ κατενεχθῇς, ἵνα μή τῷ θανάτῳ παραδοθῇς, καί τῆς Βασιλείας ἔξω κλεισθῇς· ἀλλά ἀνάνηψον κράζουσα· Ἅγιος, ἅγιος, ἅγιος εἶ ὁ Θεός ἡμῶν, προστασίαις τῶν ἀσωμάτων, σῶσον ἡμᾶς

Behold, the Bridegroom comes in the middle of the night, and blessed is the servant He shall find vigilant; but unworthy is he whom he shall find neglectful. Beware therefore, O my soul, lest you be weighed down by sleep, lest you be given over to death and be closed out from the kingdom; but rise up crying out: "Holy! Holy! Holy are You our God; through the protection of Bodiless Powers, have mercy on us.

Blessed Holy Week to all.

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων ἀμήν.
Κύριε, ἡ ἐν πολλαῖς ἁμαρτίαις περιπεσοῦσα Γυνή,
τὴν σὴν αἰσθομένη Θεότητα, μυροφόρου ἀναλαβοῦσα τάξιν,
ὀδυρομένη μύρα σοι, πρὸ τοῦ ἐνταφιασμοῦ κομίζει.
Οἴμοι! λέγουσα, ὅτι νὺξ μοι, ὑπάρχει, οἶστρος ἀκολασίας,
ζοφώδης τε καὶ ἀσέληνος, ἔρως τῆς ἁμαρτίας.
Δέξαι μου τὰς πηγὰς τῶν δακρύων,
ὁ νεφέλαις διεξάγων τῆς θαλάσσης τὸ ὕδωρ·
κάμφθητί μοι πρὸς τοὺς στεναγμοὺς τῆς καρδίας,
ὁ κλίνας τοὺς Οὐρανούς, τῇ ἀφάτῳ σου κενώσει·
καταφιλήσω τοὺς ἀχράντους σου πόδας,
ἀποσμήξω τούτους δὲ πάλιν, τοῖς τῆς κεφαλῆς μου βοστρύχοις·
ὧν ἐν τῷ Παραδείσῳ Εὔα τὸ δειλινόν,
κρότον τοῖς ὠσὶν ἠχηθεῖσα, τῷ φόβῳ ἐκρύβη.
Ἁμαρτιῶν μου τὰ πλήθη καὶ κριμάτων σου ἀβύσσους,
τίς ἐξιχνιάσει ψυχοσῶστα Σωτήρ μου;
Μὴ με τὴν σὴν δούλην παρίδῃς, ὁ ἀμέτρητον ἔχων τὸ ἔλεος.

Glory to the Father nad to the Son and the Holy Spirit
Now and ever and to the ages of ages amen.
O Lord, the woman who had fallen into many sins,
having perceived Thy divinity received the rank of myrrh-bearer,
offering Thee spices before Thy burial wailing and crying:
Woe is me, for the love of adultery
and sin hath given me a dark and lightless night;
accept the fountains of my tears
O Thou Who drawest the waters of the sea by the clouds
incline Thou to the sigh of my heart
O Thou Who didst bend the heavens by Thine inapprehensible condescension;
I will kiss Thy pure feet
and I will wipe them with my tresses.
I will kiss Thy feet Whose tread when it fell on the ears of Eve in Paradise
dismayed her so that she did hide herself because of fear.
Who then shall examine the multitude of my sin and the depth of Thy judgment?

Holy Thursday Matins Troparion "When the glorious disciples" in Mode Plagal of 4th triphonic (Patriarchal Choir of the Society of Musical friends of Constantinople in Athens):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKq0dS9D_FA

Ὅτε οἱ ἔνδοξοι μαθηταί ἐν τῷ νιπτῆρι τοῦ δείπνου ἐφωτίζοντο, τότε Ἰούδας ὁ δυσσεβής, φιλαργυρίαν νοσήσας, ἐσκοτίζετο· καί ἀνόμοις κριταῖς σέ τόν δίκαιον κριτήν παραδίδωσι. Βλέπε, χρημάτων ἐραστά, τόν διά ταῦτα ἀγχόνῃ χρησάμενον· φεῦγε ἀκόρεστον ψυχήν τήν διδασκάλῳ τοιαῦτα τολμήσασαν. Ὁ περί πάντας ἀγαθός, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.

When the glorious Disciples were enlightened at the washing of the feet before the supper, then the impious Judas was darkened, ailing with avarice, and to the lawless judges he betrays Thee, the Righteous Judge. Behold, O lover of money, this man who because of money hanged himself! Flee from the greedy soul which dared such things against the Master! O Lord, Who are good towards men, glory to Thee!

The Holy Friday Matins' Fifteenth Antiphon "Today is hung upon the Tree" after Peter the Peloponnesian in Mode Plagal of 2nd (Tropos Choir):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKPbybsb9V8

Σήμερον κρεμᾶται ἐπὶ ξύλου, ὁ ἐν ὕδασι τὴν γῆν κρεμάσας. Στέφανον ἐξ ἀκανθῶν περιτίθεται, ὁ τῶν Ἀγγέλων Βασιλεύς. Ψευδῆ πορφύραν περιβάλλεται, ὁ περιβάλλων τὸν οὐρανὸν ἐν νεφέλαις. Ῥάπισμα κατεδέξατο, ὁ ἐν Ἰορδάνῃ ἐλευθερώσας τὸν Ἀδάμ. Ἥλοις προσηλώθη, ὁ Νυμφίος τῆς Ἐκκλησίας. Λόγχῃ ἐκεντήθη, ὁ Υἱὸς τῆς Παρθένου. Προσκυνοῦμέν σου τὰ Πάθη Χριστέ. Δεῖξον ἡμῖν, καὶ τὴν ἔνδοξόν σου Ἀνάστασιν.

Today is hung upon the Tree He who hung the earth upon the waters. He who is King of the angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns. He who wraps the heavens in clouds is wrapped in the purple of mockery. He who in Jordan set Adam free receives blows upon His face. The Bridegroom of the Church is transfixed with nails. The Son of the Virgin is pierced with a spear. We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ. Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection.

Idiomelon (Samoglasen) of the Matins of Holy Friday after Pringos in Mode Pl. of 4th (Choir of Cretan Masters):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCEiqfkkAW8

Ἤδη βάπτεται κάλαμος ἀποφάσεως παρὰ κριτῶν ἀδίκων, καὶ Ἰησούς δικάζεται καὶ κατακρίνεται Σταυρῷ.
Καὶ πάσχει ἡ κτίσις ἐν Σταυρῷ καθορῶσα τὸν Κύριον.
Ἀλλ' ὁ φύσει σώματος δι' ἐμέ πάσχων, Ἀγαθέ Κύριε, Δόξα Σοι.

Already the pen of sentence is being dipped in ink by unjust judges, and Jesus is being convicted and condemned to the Cross.
Αnd creation, seeing its Lord on the Cross, is suffering.
But Υου Who for me suffer in Your bodily nature, O loving Lord, Glory to You!

The Holy Saturday Matins Idiomelon (Samoglasen) "The sun had hidden its rays" after Markos Vasileiou (+1919) in Mode Plagal of 1st (Vatopedi Choir):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cIQqND-bHQ

Τὸν ἥλιον κρύψαντα τὰς ἰδίας ἀκτίνας,
καὶ τὸ καταπέτασμα τοῦ ναοῦ διαῤῥαγέν, τῷ τοῦ Σωτῆρος θανάτῳ,
ὁ Ἰωσὴφ θεασάμενος, προσῆλθε τῷ Πιλάτῳ “καθικετεύω σε” λέγων·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, τὸν ἐκ βρέφους ὡς ξένον ξενωθέντα ἐν κόσμῳ·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ὃν ὁμόφυλοι μισοῦντες θανατοῦσιν ὡς ξένον·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ὃν ξενίζομαι βλέπειν τοῦ θανάτου τὸ ξένον·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ὅστις οἶδεν ξενίζειν τοὺς πτωχούς τε καὶ ξένους·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ὃν Ἑβραῖοι τῷ φθόνῳ ἀπεξένωσαν κόσμῳ·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ἵνα κρύψω ἐν τάφῳ, ὃτι ξένος οὐκ ἔχει τὴν κεφαλὴν ποῦ κλῖναι·
δός μοι τοῦτον τὸν ξένον, ὃν ἡ Μήτηρ ὁρῶσα νεκρωθέντα ἐβόα·
“Ὦ Υἱὲ καὶ Θεέ μου, εἰ καὶ τὰ σπλάγχνα τιτρώσκομαι,
καὶ καρδίαν σπαράττομαι, νεκρόν σε καθορῶσα,
ἀλλὰ τῇ σῇ ἀναστάσει θαρροῦσα μεγαλύνω.”
Καὶ τούτοις τοίνυν τοῖς λόγοις δυσωπῶν τὸν Πιλᾶτον
ὁ εὐσχήμων λαμβάνει τοῦ Σωτῆρος τὸ σῶμα,
καὶ φόβῳ ἐν σινδόνι εἰλήσας καὶ σμύρνᾳ, κατέθετο ἐν τάφῳ
τὸν παρέχοντα πᾶσι ζωὴν αἰώνιον καὶ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

Seeing that the sun had hidden its rays
and the veil of the Temple had been rent at the death of the Saviour,
Joseph did approach Pilate and did plead with him crying and saying;
Give me this stranger, who from his youth hath wandered like a stranger.
Give me this stranger, whom his kinsmen killed in hatred like a stranger.
Give me this stranger at whom I wonder, beholding him as a guest of death.
Give me this stranger who knoweth how to take in the poor and strangers.
Give me this stranger whom the Jews in envy estranged from the world.
Give me this stranger that I may bury him in a tomb, who being a stranger hath no place whereon to lay his head.
Give me this stranger, to whom his Mother, beholding him dead, shouted crying;
“O my Son and my God, even though my vitals be wounded,
and my heart burns, as I behold thee dead,
yet trusting in thy Resurrection, I magnify thee.”
In these words the honourable Joseph pleaded with Pilate,
took the Saviour’s body,
and with fear wrapped it in linen and balm, placing thee in a new tomb,
O thou who grantest to all everlasting life and the great mercy.

The Long Resurrectional Evlogitaria after Peter the Peloponnesian in Mode Plagal of 1st tetraphonic (Hieromonk Kyriakos Exometochitis +2008):

Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, δίδαξόν με τὰ δικαιώματά σου.
Τῶν Ἀγγέλων ὁ δῆμος, κατεπλάγη ὁρῶν σε, ἐν νεκροῖς λογισθέντα, τοῦ θανάτου δὲ Σωτήρ, τὴν ἰσχὺν καθελόντα, καὶ σὺν ἑαυτῷ τὸν Ἀδὰμ ἐγείραντα, καὶ ἐξ ᾍδου πάντας ἐλευθερώσαντα.
Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, δίδαξόν με τὰ δικαιώματά σου.
Λίαν πρωΐ, Μυροφόροι ἔδραμον, πρὸς τὸ μνῆμά σου θρηνολογοῦσαι· ἀλλ' ἐπέστη, πρὸς αὐτὰς ὁ Ἄγγελος, καὶ εἶπε· θρήνου ὁ καιρὸς πέπαυται, μὴ κλαίετε, τὴν Ἀνάστασιν δέ, Ἀποστόλοις εἴπατε.
Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Προσκυνοῦμεν Πατέρα, καὶ τὸν τούτου Υἱόν τε, καὶ τὸ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα, τὴν Ἁγίαν Τριάδα, ἐν μιᾷ τῇ οὐσίᾳ, σὺν τοῖς Σεραφείμ, κράζοντες τό· Ἅγιος, Ἅγιος, Ἅγιος εἶ, Κύριε.
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων ἀμήν.
Ζωοδότην τεκοῦσα, ἁμαρτίας Παρθένε τὸν Ἀδὰμ ἐλυτρώσω, χαρμονὴν δὲ τῇ Εὔᾳ, ἀντὶ λύπης παρέσχες, ῥεύσαντα ζωῆς, ἴθυνε πρὸς ταύτην δέ, ὁ ἐκ σοῦ σαρκωθείς Θεὸς καὶ ἄνθρωπος.
Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα. Δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός (x3)

Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
The assembly of angels was amazed, beholding Thee, a man among the dead, yet O Saviour destroying the stronghold of death, and with Thyself raising up Adam, and freeing all from Hades.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
Very early the myrrh-bearing women hastened, unto thy tomb, lamenting. But the angel stood before them and said: The time for lamentation is passed! Weep not! But tell of the resurrection to the apostles.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Let us all worship the Father, and His Son, and the Holy Spirit; the Holy Trinity, one in essence; crying with the Seraphim: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O Lord.
Both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages, amen.
In bringing for the Giver of Life, thou hast delivered Adam from Sin, O Virgin, and hast brought joy to Eve instead of sorrow. Man thus fallen from life, hath thereunto been restored by Him who of thee was incarnate, both God and man.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! Glory to Thee, O God (x3).

The Paschal Communion Hymn "Тело Христово - Receive Ye the Body of Christ"; the language if I'm not mistaken is Church Slavonic (the choir is Bulgarian "Трисагион" - "Trisagion") and it's chanted according to the Byzantine tradition (Mode 1st):

The 15th Antiphon by the same choir (Mode Plagal of 2nd):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C1bn_XpQ5w
Σῶμα Χριστοῦ μεταλάβετε, πηγῆς ἀθανάτου γεύσασθε

Also today reposed in the Lord, elder Spyridon the Hymnographer, one of the handful officially named "hymnographers" in the Greek speaking Churches, after short illness; he belonged to the hymnographic brotherhood of Μικρὰ Ἁγία Ἄννα (Mikra Aghia Anna) of Athos, and was the disciple of elder Gerasimos Mikrayannanitis the Hymnographer (+1991):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBqq_y-L6Hg
After 1:30 you can listen to his thunderous voice chanting "Kyrie Eleison".
Elder Spyridon pray to God for us.

562 years ago today...
May the Memory of those who fell defending the Queen of Cities, be Eternal.

Τhe earliest recorded (late 15th c.) lamentation over the Fall of Constantinople, from Thrace (Mode Pl. of 1st, of the hard diatonic genus) chanted by Maria Kontoyannopoulou:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeVYd6mCMv4

Γιατὶ πουλὶ μ΄ δέν κελαηδεῖς, πῶς κελαηδοῦσες πρῶτα;
Γιὰ πῶς μπορῶ νὰ κελαηδῶ;
Μέ κόψαν τὰ φτερούδια μου, μέ πῆραν τὴ λαλιὰ μου
Μᾶς πήρανε βρ' ἀμάν τὴν Πόλη μας
Μᾶς πήρανε τὴν Πόλη μας καὶ τὴν Ἁγιά-Σοφιά μας
Κλαίγει πικράν ἡ Παναγιά

Hey bird, why don't you warble? How did you warble before?
Ah, but how may I warble?
They have cut down my little wings, they stole my voice
They took, sigh, our City
They took our City and our Haghia-Sophia
and Panagia bitterly laments


Idiomelon (Samoglasen) of funerals after Peter the Peloponnesian in Mode Grave (Heirmologic) chanted by Michael Mamaes:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rt7ljrj2CiU

Ἀνάπαυσον Σωτὴρ ἡμῶν ζωοδότα, οὓς μετέστησας ἀδελφοὺς ἡμῶν, ἐκ τῶν προσκαίρων, κράζοντας· Κύριε δόξα σοι

Give rest, our Saviour, to our brothers/sisters, whom you have taken over from transient things, as they cry, "Glory to you!"

The Greek Byzantine Choir chants the Doxastikon of Pentecost "O Heavenly King" after George Raedestinos (+1889) in Mode Pl. of 2:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGThuO6_sdc

Βασιλεῦ οὐράνιε, Παράκλητε, τό Πνεῦμα τῆς ἀληθείας, ὁ πανταχοῦ παρών καὶ τὰ πάντα πληρῶν, ὁ θησαυρός τῶν ἀγαθῶν καὶ ζωῆς χορηγός, ἐλθέ καὶ σκήνωσον ἐν ἡμῖν, καὶ καθάρισον ἡμᾶς ἀπό πάσης κηλίδος, καὶ σῶσον, ἀγαθὲ τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

O Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere and fillest all things; Treasury of Blessings, and Giver of Life - come and abide in us, and cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.

St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia prays "O Heavenly King":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O86q8aLeBes
Ἦχος Βαρύς

Ὁπλιτικῆς φάλαγγος οἰκεῖον μέλος

The Vesperal Dogmatikon of Pentecost after Peter Philanthides (late 19th c.) in Mode Plagal of 4th (chanted by the nuns of Ormylia):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J29K-sGhOaI

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Δεῦτε λαοί, τὴν τρισυπόστατον Θεότητα προσκυνήσωμεν, Υἱὸν ἐν τῷ Πατρί, σὺν ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι· Πατὴρ γὰρ ἀχρόνως ἐγέννησεν Υἱόν, συναΐδιον καὶ σύνθρονον, καὶ Πνεῦμα ἅγιον ἦν ἐν τῷ Πατρί, σὺν Υἱῷ δοξαζόμενον, μία δύναμις, μία οὐσία, μία Θεότης, ἣν προσκυνοῦντες πάντες λέγομεν· Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, ὁ τὰ πάντα δημιουργήσας δι' Υἱοῦ, συνεργίᾳ τοῦ Ἁγίου Πνεύματος, Ἅγιος ἰσχυρός, δι' οὗ τὸν Πατέρα ἐγνώκαμεν, καὶ τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον ἐπεδήμησεν ἐν κόσμῳ, Ἅγιος ἀθάνατος, τὸ Παράκλητον Πνεῦμα, τὸ ἐκ Πατρὸς ἐκπορευόμενον, καὶ ἐν Υἱῷ ἀναπαυόμενον, Τριὰς ἁγία, δόξα σοι.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, amen.
Come, O ye people, let us worship the Godhead in Three Hypostases; the Son in the Father, with the Holy Spirit; for the Father timelessly begat the Son Who is Co-ever-existing and Coenthroned, and the Holy Spirit was in the Father, glorified together with the Son; One Might, One Essence, One Godhead. In worshipping Whom let us all say: O Holy God, Who madest all things by the Son, through the cooperation of the Holy Spirit; Holy Mighty, through Whom we have known the Father, and through Whom the Holy Spirit came into the world; Holy Immortal, the Comforting Spirit, Who proceedest from the Father, and restest in the Son: O Holy Trinity, glory be to Thee

St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia prays "O Heavenly King":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O86q8aLeBes

I love him.  :)
My best friend has met him personally (he was a troubled teen and his parents took him to st. Porphyrios to help), I did not have the privilige (I was not so close to the Church back then). He is a HUGE saint. His characteristic was that he was love incarnate.

The Sunday of All Saints Communion Hymn "Rejoice in the Lord" after Peter the Peloponnesian (early 19th c.) chanted by Charis Simeonidis, in Mode Plagal of 4th (unfortunately the sound of the ison machine is too artificial and digital, yet mr. Symeonidis' chanting is praiseworthy):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsDUVLXwL0M

Ἀγαλλιᾶσθε, δίκαιοι, ἐν Κυρίῳ· τοῖς εὐθέσι πρέπει αἴνεσις.
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous; praise is meet for the upright.

Byzantine  Secular Music.  All 3 volumes are great. I'm  Not too sure how authentic or modernized  it is, but it's enjoyable  none the less.
"While other animals look downwards at the ground, he gave human beings an upturned aspect, commanding them to look towards the skies, and, upright, raise their face to the stars. So the earth, that had been, a moment ago, uncarved and imageless, changed and assumed the unknown shapes of human beings."

Τὴν τιμιωτέραν τῶν Χερουβεὶμ καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν ἀσυγκρίτως τῶν Σεραφείμ, τὴν ἀδιαφθόρως Θεὸν Λόγον τεκοῦσαν, τὴν ὄντως Θεοτόκον, σὲ μεγαλύνομεν.

It is truly meet to bless thee, O Theotokos, ever blessed, and most pure, and the Mother of our God.

A' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 1st Matinal Doxastikon after Thrasyboulos Stanitsas (+1987), Mode 1st, chanted by the "Ἐν Ψαλτηρίῳ" (en psalterio) Choir:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9BUBfYhCjA

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Εἰς τὸ ὄρος τοῖς μαθηταῖς ἐπειγομένοις, διὰ τὴν χαμόθεν ἔπαρσιν, ἐπέστη ὁ Κύριος καὶ προσκυνήσαντες αὐτόν καὶ την δοθεῖσαν ἐξουσίαν, πανταχοῦ διδαχθέντες, εἰς τὴν ὑπ' οὐρανόν ἐξαπεστέλλοντο κηρῦξαι τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν Ἀνάστασιν, καὶ τὴν εἰς οὐρανούς ἀποκατάστασιν. Οἷς καὶ συνδιαιωνίζειν, ὁ ἀψευδής ἐπηγγείλατο, Χριστός ὁ Θεός καὶ Σωτὴρ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit 
The Lord stood before His Disciples, who had ascended the mountain for His being lifted from the ground. They worshipped Him, and when they had been taught that authority had been given Him everywhere, they were sent out to proclaim His Resurrection from the dead and His restoration to Heaven. And Christ, God and the Saviour of our souls, promised unfailingly that He would be with them for ever.

B' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 2nd Matinal Doxastikon after Peter the Peloponnesia (+1778), Mode 2nd, chanted by George Chadzichronoglou:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwJ5Koi2X68

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Μετὰ μύρων προσελθούσαις, ταῖς περὶ Μαριὰμ Γυναιξί, καὶ διαπορουμέναις, πῶς ἔσται αὐταῖς τυχεῖν τοῦ ἐφετοῦ, ὡράθη ὁ λίθος μετηρμένος, καὶ θεῖος Νεανίας, καταστέλλων τὸν θόρυβον αὐτῶν τῆς ψυχῆς. Ἠγέρθη γὰρ φήσιν, Ἰησοῦς ὁ Κύριος· διὸ κηρύξατε τοῖς κήρυξιν αὐτοῦ Μαθηταῖς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν δραμεῖν, καὶ ὄψεσθε αὐτόν, ἀναστάντα ἐκ νεκρῶν, ὡς ζωοδότην καὶ Κύριον.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
The women who were with Mary came bringing spices, and being at a loss how to attain their purpose, they saw the stone rolled away, and a divine youth calming the tumult of their souls, for saith he, the Lord Jesus is risen. Wherefore preach to His disciples to make haste to Galilee and behold Him risen from the dead as the Lord and Giver of life.

Γ' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 3rd Matinal Doxastikon, after Athanasios Karamanis (+2012), Mode 3rd, chanted by Matthew Tsamkiranis (live recording):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgncTNkfJgg

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Τῆς Μαγδαληνῆς Μαρίας, τὴν τοῦ Σωτῆρος εὐαγγελιζομένης, ἐκ νεκρῶν Ἀνάστασιν καὶ ἐμφάνειαν, διαπιστοῦντες οἱ Μαθηταὶ, ὠνειδίζοντο τὸ τῆς καρδίας σκληρόν· ἀλλὰ τοῖς σημείοις καθοπλισθέντες καὶ θαύμασι, πρὸς τὸ κήρυγμα ἀπεστέλλοντο· καὶ σὺ μὲν Κύριε, πρὸς τὸν ἀρχίφωτον ἀνελήφθης Πατέρα, οἱ δὲ ἐκήρυττον πανταχοῦ τὸν λόγον, τοῖς θαύμασιν πιστούμενοι. Διό οἱ φωτισθέντες δι' αὐτῶν δοξάζομέν Σου, τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν Ἀνάστασιν, φιλάνθρωπε Κύριε.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
When Mary Magdalene proclaimed the Saviour's Resurrection and His appearance to her, the disciples were upbraided for their hardness of heart, because they disbelieved; but after they were arned with signs and wonders, they were sent forth to preach; and where as Thou, O Lord, didst ascend to Thy Father, the author of light, they preached the word everywhere, confirming it with miracles. Wherefore, we who have been enlightened by them, glorify Thy Resurrection from the dead, O man-befriending Lord.

Δ' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 4th Matinal Doxastikon, after Peter the Peloponnesian (+1778), Mode 4th (Agia), chanted by Christos Tsakiroglou:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiL41pQohLE

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Ὄρθρος ἦν βαθὺς καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες ἦλθον ἐπὶ τὸ μνῆμα Σου Χριστὲ, ἀλλὰ τὸ σῶμα οὐχ εὑρέθη, τὸ ποθούμενον αὐταῖς· διὸ ἀπορουμέναις, οἱ ταῖς ἀστραπτούσαις ἐσθήσεσιν ἐπιστάντες. Τὶ τὸν ζῶντα μετὰ τῶν νεκρῶν ζητεῖτε; ἔλεγον. Ἠγέρθη ὡς προεῖπε, τὶ ἀμνημονεῖτε τῶν ῥημάτων αὐτοῦ; Οἷς πεισθεῖσαι, τὰ ὁραθέντα ἐκήρυττον, ἀλλ' ἐδόκει λῆρος τὰ εὐαγγέλια, οὕτως ἦσαν ἔτι νωθεῖς οἱ Μαθηταὶ· ἀλλ' ὁ Πέτρος ἔδραμε καὶ ἰδών ἐδόξασέ Σου πρὸς ἑαυτόν τὰ θαυμάσια.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
It was very early in the morning when the women came unto Thy sepulchre, O Christ, but Thy body which was precious to them, was not found; wherefore, as they were much perplexed, men in shining garments stood by them and said. Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is risen as He foretold. Why have ye forgotten His words? Being persuaded by them, the women proclaimed the things they had seen, but their glad tidings seemed as idle tales, for the disciples were yet without understanding. But Peter ran forth, and when he saw Thy wonders, he glorified them within himself.

Ε' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 5th Matinal Doxastikon, after Peter the Peloponnesian (+1778), Mode Pl. of 1st, chanted by Zacharias Karounis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIGBX9GBf4g

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Ὢ τῶν σοφῶν Σου κριμάτων Χριστέ! Πῶς Πέτρῳ μὲν τοῖς ὀθονίοις μόνοις, ἔδωκας ἐννοῆσαί Σου τὴν Ἀνάστασιν, Λουκᾷ δὲ καὶ Κλεόπᾳ, συμπορευόμενος ὡμίλεις, καὶ ὁμιλῶν, οὐκ εὐθέως σεαυτὸν φανεροῖς; Διὸ καὶ ὀνειδίζῃ, ὡς μόνος παροικῶν ἐν Ἱερουσαλήμ, καὶ μὴ μετέχων τῶν, ἐν τέλει βουλευμάτων αὐτῆς. Ἀλλ' ὁ πάντα πρός τὸ τοῦ πλάσματος συμφέρον οἰκονομῶν, καὶ τὰς περὶ σοῦ προφητείας ἀνέπτυξας, καὶ ἐν τῷ εὐλογεῖν τὸν ἄρτον, ἐγνώσθης αὐτοῖς, ὧν καὶ πρὸ τούτου αἱ καρδίαι, πρὸς γνῶσίν Σου ἀνεφλέγοντο, οἳ καὶ τοῖς Μαθηταῖς συνηθροισμένοις, ἤδη τρανῶς ἐκήρυττόν Σου τὴν Ἀνάστασιν, δι' ἧς ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
O the wisdom of Thy judgments, O Christ! For how is it that Thou gavest Peter to understand Thy Resurrection by Thy burial clothes alone, yet while accompanying Luke and Cleopas Thou didst converse with them, and while conversing, didst not reveal Thy self straight way? Hence, Thou wast reproached as though Thou alone wert a stranger in Jerusalem, who knew not what had come to pass there-in of late. But since Thou ordainest all things to the profit of Thy creation, Thou didst both expound the prophecies concerning Thee, and in the blessing of the bread, wast made known to them, whose hearts even before hand, were burning to know Thee. Now, they also, when the disciples were gathered together, loudly proclaimed Thy Ressurrection; where-by do Thou have mercy on us.   

ΣΤ' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 6th Matinal Doxastikon, after Athanasios Karamanis (+2012), Mode Pl. of 2nd, chanted by Photios Ketsedzis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-wHm7PM1xQ

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Ἡ ὄντως εἰρήνη Σὺ Χριστέ, πρὸς ἀνθρώπους Θεοῦ, εἰρήνην τὴν Σὴν διδούς, μετὰ τὴν Ἔγερσιν Μαθηταῖς, ἐμφόβους ἔδειξας αὐτούς, δόξαντας πνεῦμα ὁρᾷν, ἀλλὰ κατέστειλας τὸν τάραχον αὐτῶν τῆς ψυχῆς, δείξας τὰς χεῖρας καὶ τοὺς πόδας Σου· πλὴν ἀπιστούντων ἔτι, τὴ τῆς τροφῆς μεταλήψει, καὶ διδαχῶν ἀναμνήσει, διήνοιξας αὐτῶν τὸν νοῦν, τοῦ συνιέναι τὰς Γραφάς· οἷς καὶ τὴν Πατρικὴν ἐπαγγελίαν καθυποσχόμενος, καὶ εὐλογήσας αὐτούς, διέστης πρὸς οὐρανόν. Διὸ σὺν αὐτοῖς προσκυνοῦμέν Σε, Κύριε δόξα Σοι. 

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
Thou Who art the true peace to men of God, O Christ, while giving Thy peace to Thy disciples after Thy Resurrection, didst cause them to be afrightened, for they supposed they beheld a spirit; but Thou didst quiet the trouble in their souls by showing them Thy hands and feet, although they yet believed not. But in partaking of food and bringing Thy teachings to remembrance, Thou didst open their understanding that they might understand the Scriptures. And after Thou hadst assured them of the Father's promise and hadst blessed them, Thou didst depart unto Heaven. Wherefore together with them, we worship Thee; O Lord, glory be to Thee.

Z' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 7th Matinal Doxastikon (I think it's after Karamanis), Mode Grave enharmonic, chanted by Constantine & Athanasios Bilalis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNC1Ip0H3oY

(Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι)
Ἰδοὺ σκοτία καὶ πρωΐ, καὶ τί πρὸς τὸ μνημεῖον Μαρία ἕστηκας, πολὺ σκότος ἔχουσα ταῖς φρεσίν; ὑφ' οὗ ποῦ τέθειται ζητεῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς. Ἀλλ' ὅρα τοὺς συντρέχοντας Μαθητάς, πῶς τοῖς ὀθονίοις καὶ τῷ σουδαρίῳ, τὴν Ἀνάστασιν ἐτεκμήραντο, καὶ ἀνεμνήσθησαν τῆς περὶ τούτου Γραφῆς. Μεθ' ὧν, καὶ δι' ὧν καὶ ἡμεῖς, πιστεύσαντες, ἀνυμνοῦμέν σε τὸν ζωοδότην Χριστόν.

(Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit)
Behold the darkness and the dawn; and why hast thou stood with, out at the selpuchre, O Mary, having great darkness in thy mind? Because of this, thou didst ask: Where hath Jesus been laid? But see both the disciples running together, how they surmised His Resurrection from the linen clothes and the napkin; and they remembered the Scripture concerning Him. Together with them, we who also have believed through them, praise Thee, O Christ, the Giver of life.

Η' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 8th Matinal Doxastikon after James the Protopsaltis (+1800), Mode Pl. of 4th, chanted by the choir of "The Psaltic Workshop" :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDYgphmhDCg

Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Τὰ τῆς Μαρίας δάκρυα οὐ μάτην χεῖνται θερμῶς· ἰδοὺ γὰρ κατηξίωται, καὶ διδασκόντων Ἀγγέλων, καὶ τῆς ὄψεως τῆς σῆς ὦ Ἰησοῦ· ἀλλ' ἔτι πρόσγεια φρονεῖ, οἷα γυνὴ ἀσθενής· διὸ καὶ ἀποπέμπεται μὴ προσψαῦσαί σοι Χριστέ. Ἀλλ' ὅμως κήρυξ πέμπεται τοῖς σοῖς Μαθηταῖς, οἷς εὐαγγέλια ἔφησε, τὴν πρὸς τὸν πατρῷον κλῆρον ἄνοδον ἀπαγγέλλουσα. Μεθ' ἧς ἀξίωσον καὶ ἡμᾶς, τῆς ἐμφανείας σου, Δέσποτα Κύριε.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
The fervent tears of Mary were not shed in vain, for behold, she hath been counted worthy of being instructed by Angels and of seeing Thy countenance, O Jesus; yet as a weak woman she still minded earthy things. Therefore, she was turned back that she might not touch Thee, O Christ. How be it, she was sent as a herald to Thy disciples, and telling them the good tidings, she proclaimed Thine ascent unto Thy Paternal inheritance. Together with her, account us also worthy of Thy manifestation, O Sovereign Lord.

Θ' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 9th Matinal Doxastikon, after Athanasios Karamanis (+2012), Mode Pl. of 1st, chanted by Spyridon Maidanoglou (live recording):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQicJxm4iT0

Δόξα Πατρί καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Ὡς ἐπ' ἐσχάτων τῶν χρόνων, οὔσης ὀψίας Σαββάτων, ἐφίστασαι τοῖς φίλοις Χριστέ, καὶ θαύματι θαῦμα βεβαιοῖς, τῇ κεκλεισμένῃ εἰσόδῳ τῶν θυρῶν, τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν Σου Ἀνάστασιν· ἀλλ' ἔπλησας χαρᾶς τοὺς Μαθητάς, καὶ Πνεύματος ἁγίου μετέδωκας αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἐξουσίαν ἔνειμας ἀφέσεως ἁμαρτιῶν, καὶ τὸν Θωμᾶν οὐ κατέλιπες, τῷ τῆς ἀπιστίας καταβαπτίζεσθαι κλύδωνι. Διὸ παράσχου καὶ ἡμῖν, γνῶσιν ἀληθῆ, καὶ ἄφεσιν πταισμάτων, εὔσπλαγχνε Κύριε.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
In these later times Thou camest to thy friends at evening of the first day of the week, O Christ; and by Thine entry whilst the doors were shut, Thou by a wonder didst confirm a wonder, even Thy Resurrection from the dead. Then thou didst fill the disciples with joy and didst impart the Holy Spirit to them, and didst bestow on them authority to forgive sins; more over Thou didst not abandon Thomas to founder in the billows of unbelief. Wherefore, grant us also true knowledge and remission of offences, O compassionate Lord.

I' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 10th Matinal Doxastikon, after John the Protopsaltis (+1770), Mode Pl. of 2nd, chanted by George Chadzichronoglou:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPZEQ-NjcGw

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Μετὰ τὴν εἰς ᾍδου κάθοδον, καὶ τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν Ἀνάστασιν, ἀθυμοῦντες ὡς εἰκός, ἐπὶ τῷ χωρισμῷ Σου Χριστὲ οἱ Μαθηταί, πρὸς ἐργασίαν ἐτράπησαν· καὶ πάλιν πλοῖα καὶ δίκτυα, καὶ
ἄγρα οὐδαμοῦ. Ἀλλὰ σὺ Σῶτερ ἐμφανισθείς, ὡς δεσπότης πάντων, δεξιοῖς τὰ δίκτυα κελεύεις βαλεῖν· καὶ ἦν ὁ λόγος ἔργον εὐθύς, καὶ πλῆθος τῶν ἰχθύων πολύ, καὶ δεῖπνον ξένον ἕτοιμον ἐν γῇ· οὗ μετασχόντων τότε Σου τῶν Μαθητῶν, καὶ ἡμᾶς νῦν νοητῶς καταξίωσον ἐντρυφῆσαι, φιλάνθρωπε Κύριε.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
After Thy descent to Hades and Thy Resurrection from the dead, the disciples turned unto their work, since they naturally lost heart at Thy separation from them. Again the ships and the nets, and no draught of fishes what so ever. But appearing to them, Thou as the Master of all, didst command them to cast their nets on the right side. Straight way Thy word became deed, and then there was a great multitude of fishes and a strange supper ready on the shore. Count us all worthy now to rejoice spiritually in that which Thy disciples partook of then, O man be-friending Lord.

IA' Ἐωθινόν Δοξαστικόν - 11th Matinal Doxastikon, after Thrasyboulos Stanitsas (+1987), Mode Pl. of 4th, chanted by the "Ἐν Ψαλτηρίῳ" (en psalterio) Choir:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKoq0_0L-dY

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Φανερῶν σεαυτόν, τοῖς Μαθηταῖς σου Σωτὴρ μετὰ τὴν Ἀνάστασιν, Σίμωνι δέδωκας τὴν τῶν προβάτων νομήν, εἰς ἀγάπης ἀντέκτισιν, τὴν τοῦ ποιμένειν φροντίδα αἰτῶν. Διὸ καὶ ἔλεγε· Εἰ φιλεῖς με Πέτρε, ποίμαινε τὰ ἀρνία μου, ποίμαινε τὰ πρόβατά μου. Ὁ δὲ εὐθέως ἐνδεικνύμενος τὸ φιλόστοργον, περὶ τοῦ ἄλλου Μαθητοῦ ἐπυνθάνετο. Ὧν ταῖς πρεσβείαις Χριστέ, τὴν ποίμνην σου διαφύλαττε, ἐκ λύκων λυμαινομένων αὐτήν.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
When Thou didst show Thy self to the disciples after Thy Resurrection, O Saviour, Thou gavest Simon the tending of the sheep, that he might return Thy love, and Thou didst ask him to have care for the shepherding of the flock. Wherefore Thou didst say to him: if thou lovest Me, O Peter, feed my lambs, feed my sheep. And he, straightway, showing his affectionate love, inquired concerning the other disciples. By their intercesions, O Christ, preserve Thy flock from the wolves that ravage it.

Dogmatikon Theotokion after st. John Damascene (+756), translated to the new Byzantine notation after Khurmuzius the archiver (+1840), Mode Pl. of 1st chanted by Zacharias Karounis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syGg8Z6iZfM

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Ἐν τῇ Ἐρυθρᾷ θαλάσσῃ, τῆς ἀπειρογάμου νύμφης εἰκὼν διεγράφη ποτέ. Ἐκεῖ Μωϋσῆς διαιρέτης τοῦ ὕδατος, ἐνθάδε Γαβριὴλ ὑπηρέτης τοῦ θαύματος. Τότε τὸν βυθόν ἐπέζευσεν ἀβρόχως Ἰσραήλ, νῦν δὲ τὸν Χριστὸν ἐγέννησεν ἀσπόρως ἡ Παρθένος. Ἡ θάλασσα, μετὰ τὴν πάροδον τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, ἔμεινεν ἄβατος, ἡ ἄμεμπτος, μετὰ τήν κύησιν τοῦ Ἐμμανουήλ, ἔμεινεν ἄφθορος, ὁ ὤν, καὶ προών, καὶ φανεὶς ὡς ἄνθρωπος Θεός, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen.
In the Red Sea of old a type of the Virgin Bride was prefigured. There Moses divided the waters, here Gabriel assisted in the miracle. There Israel crossed the sea without getting wet, here the Virgin gave birth to Christ without seed. After Israel's passage the sea remained impassible, after Emmanuel's birth the Virgin remained a virgin. O ever-existing God who appeared as man; O Lord have mercy on us.

The ancient and extended Kontakion from the Akathist Hymn to the Theotokos after st. John Damascene (+756), Mode Pl. 4th, chanted by "The Greek Byzantine Choir":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgcJcRzwFuk

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.
 
O Champion General, I your city now inscribe to you triumphant anthems as the tokens of my gratitude, being rescued from the terrors, O Theotokos. But since you have the dominion unassailable, from all kinds of perils free me so that unto you, I may cry aloud: rejoice, O Bride unwedded.

The ancient and extended Troparion of the Bridegroom Matins after st. John Damascene (+756), Mode Pl. 4th triphonic, chanted by Thrasyboulos Stanitsas (+1987) live recording (Patriarchal Cathedral of st. George, Istanbul, Great and Holy Tuesday 1958):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqoIOV4Nbic

Ἰδοὺ ὁ Νυμφίος ἔρχεται ἐν τῷ μέσῳ τῆς νυκτός, καὶ μακάριος ὁ δοῦλος, ὃν εὑρήσει γρηγοροῦντα, ἀνάξιος δὲ πάλιν, ὃν εὑρήσει ῥαθυμοῦντα. Βλέπε οὖν ψυχή μου, μὴ τῷ ὕπνῳ κατενεχθής, ἵνα μῄ τῷ θανάτῳ παραδοθῇς, καὶ τῆς βασιλείας ἔξω κλεισθῇς, ἀλλὰ ἀνάνηψον κράζουσα· Ἅγιος, Ἅγιος, Ἅγιος εἶ ὁ Θεός, πρεσβείαις τοῦ Ἀθλοφόρου σῶσον ἡμᾶς

Behold the Bridegroom comes at midnight, and blessed is the servant whom he shall find watching, and unworthy is the servant whom he shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, oh my soul. Do not be weighed down with sleep, lest you be given up to death, and lest you be shut out of the kingdom. But rouse yourself, crying, Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou O God, through the intercessions of the Trophy-bearer, save us.

Idiomelon (Samoglasen) of the Aposticha of the Vespers on Fifth Sunday of Lent, as it is found in the Byzantine Sticherarion (14th c.), Mode 1st tetraphonic, chanted by the "Trikki's Melodists" (live recording 2005):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qfd0zeREwOU

Θαυμαστὴ τοῦ Σωτῆρος, ἡ δι' ἡμᾶς φιλάνθρωπος γνώμη· τῶν μελλόντων γὰρ τὴν γνῶσιν, ὡς παρόντων κεκτημένος, τοῦ Λαζάρου καὶ τοῦ Πλουσίου, τὸν βίον ἐστηλίτευσε· τῶν ἑκατέρων οὖν τὸ τέλος ἑνοπτριζόμενοι, τοῦ μὲν φύγωμεν, τὸ ἀπηνὲς καὶ μισάνθρωπον, τοῦ δὲ ζηλώσωμεν, τὸ καρτερὲς καὶ μακρόθυμον, πρὸς τὸ σὺν αὐτῷ τοῦ Ἀβραὰμ κόλποις, ἐνθαλπόμενοι βοᾶν· Δικαιοκρῖτα Κύριε, δόξα σοι.   

Wonderful is the purpose of the compassionate Saviour towards us; for possessing the knowledge of future things as present, He made known the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus. Let us
contemplate the end of both. As for one, let us run away from his cruelty and hatred of men. As for the other, let us emulate his endurance and long-suffering; that, delighting with him in the
bosom of Abraham, we may shout, saying, O Lord, righteous Judge, glory to Thee.

Ancient and extended Idiomelon (Samoglasen) of the Aposticha on the Vespers of the feast of st. Demetrius of Thessalonika, after ὅσ. Ἰωάννης Παπαδόπουλος "Κουκουζέλης"-st. Ioannis Papadopoulos "Koukouzelis", Mode Pl. of 2nd, chanted by the "Greek Byzantine Choir":

Φρούρησον πανένδοξε τὴν σὲ μεγαλύνουσαν πόλιν ἀπὸ τῶν ἑναντίον προσβολῶν, παρρησίαν ὡς ἔχων, πρὸς Χριστὸν τὸν σὲ δοξάσαντα. Ἀοίδιμε Δημήτριε, φρούρησον τὴν σὲ τιμῶσαν πόλιν, τοὺς ἄνακτας συμμάχησον, τὴν πόλιν σου στερέωσον, τοὺς σὲ τιμῶντας εὐσεβῶς ἀοίδιμε Δημήτριε -κράτημα- παρρησίαν ὡς ἔχων πρὸς Χριστὸν τὸν σὲ δοξάσαντα.

Ο all-glorious Demetrius keep watch over the city which doth magnify thee, from the adversaries' attacks; for thou art favoured by Christ who did glorify thee. O Demetrius of ever-constant memory keep watch over the city which doth praise thee, fight along with our leaders, strengthen thy city and those who reverently doth praise thee O Demetrius of ever-constant memory -kratima- for thou art favoured by Christ who did glorify thee.

Στίχος: Ἐπὶ σoὶ χαίρει, Κεχαριτωμένη, πᾶσα ἡ κτίσις, Ἀγγέλων τὸ σύστημα καὶ ἀνθρώπων τό γένος, ἡγιασμένε ναέ καὶ παράδεισε λογικέ, παρθενικόν καύχημα, ἐξ ἧς Θεός ἐσαρκώθη καὶ παιδίον γέγονεν, ὁ πρὸ αἰώνων ὑπάρχων Θεός ημῶν·
τήν γάρ σήν μήτραν θρόνον ἐποίησε καὶ τήν σήν γαστέρα πλατυτέραν οὐρανῶν ἀπειργάσατο. Ἐπὶ σοὶ χαίρει, Κεχαριτωμένη, πᾶσα ἡ κτίσις δόξα σοι.

Verse: In thee rejoiceth, O thou who art full of grace, all creation, the assembly of the angels and the race of man, O Sanctified Temple and rational Paradise, boast of virgins, of whom God was incarnate and became a child, even our God, who is before the ages;
for He made of thy body a throne, and thy womb did He form more spacious than the heavens. In thee rejoiceth, O thou who art full of grace, all creation. Glory to thee.

The earliest known hymn to the Theotokos written in Greek, dates to the mid-2nd c. AD, and it's still used as the dismissal hymn of Vespers during Great Lent. Chanted by the "Cretan Masters" in Mode Pl. of 1st (live recording 2010):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNBqAENvxlI
 
Ὑπὸ τὴν σὴν εὐσπλαγχνίαν καταφεύγομεν Θεοτὸκε, τὰς ἡμῶν ἱκεσίας μὴ παρίδῃς ἐν περιστάσει ἀλλ᾽ ἐκ κινδύνου λύτρωσαι ἡμᾶς, μόνη ἁγνὴ, μόνη εὐλογημένη.
Beneath your compassion we take refuge, Theotokos! Our prayers, do not despise in necessities, but from danger deliver us, only pure, only blessed one.

Thank you, Apostolos!
Glad you like it Cyrillic, if you're interested, these mediaeval composers have also composed secular music;
Byzantine secular sympotic instrumental music pieces composed by (the translation into the modern music notation and the arrangement of orchestra has been done by Christodoulos Khalaris, a strange person with controversial views who has done a magnificent job deciphering long forgotten ancient manuscripts on Mount Athos):

Xenos of Koroni (+11th c.), Mode 1st (the Nightingale Kratima):

Καὶ τὸ μνημόσυνόν σου εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν, Ἀλληλούια.
Αnd thy remembrance unto all generations, Αlleluia.

Doxastikon of the Vespers of Soul Saturdays during Great Lent after Manuel Chrysaphes the Archon Lampadarios (+1463 or +1465), Mode Pl. of 4th, chanted by fr. George Tsetsis:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9akJg-RpreI

(Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι)
Θρηνῶ καὶ ὀδύρομαι, ὅταν ἐννοήσω τὸν θάνατον, καὶ ἴδω ἐν τοῖς τάφοις κειμένην τὴν κατ᾿ εἰκόνα Θεοῦ, πλασθεῖσαν ἡμῖν ὡραιότητα, ἄμορφον, ἄδοξον, μὴ ἔχουσαν εἶδος. Ὢ τοῦ θαύματος! Τί τὸ περὶ ἡμᾶς τοῦτο γέγονε μυστήριον; Πῶς παρεδόθημεν τῇ φθορᾷ, καὶ συνεζεύχθημεν τῷ θανάτῳ; Ὄντως Θεοῦ προστάξει, ὡς γέγραπται, τοῦ παρέχοντος τοῖς μεταστᾶσι τὴν ἀνάπαυσιν.

(Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit)
I weep and lament when I think upon death, and behold our beauty created in the likeness of God lying in the tomb disfigured, bereft of glory and form. O the marvel of it! What is this mystery concerning us? Why have we been delivered to corruption? Why have we been wedded unto death? Truly, as it is written, by the command of God Who giveth the departed rest.

The Vespers Doxastikon for the feast of the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ after Constantine Pringos (+1964), Mode Pl. of 2nd, chanted by Kyriakos Dzouramanis (live recording at the Monastic Establishment (Kathisma) of the Transiguration of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, western Mani, Peloponnese).

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Προτυπῶν τὴν Ἀνάστασιν τὴν σήν, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, τότε παραλαμβάνεις τοὺς τρεῖς σου μαθητάς, Πέτρον καὶ Ἰάκωβον καὶ Ἰωάννην, ἐν τῷ Θαβὼρ ἀνελθών. Σοῦ δὲ Σωτήρ μεταμορφουμένου, τὸ Θαβώριον ὄρος φωτὶ ἐσκέπετο. Οἱ Μαθηταί σου Λόγε, ἔρριψαν ἑαυτοὺς ἐν τῷ ἐδάφει τῆς γῆς, μὴ φέροντες ὁρᾶν, τὴν ἀθέατον μορφήν. Ἄγγελοι διηκόνουν φόβῳ καὶ τρόμῳ, οὐρανοὶ ἔφριξαν, γῆ ἐτρόμαξεν, ὁρῶντες ἐπὶ γῆς, τῆς δόξης τὸν Κύριον.
     
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
Prefiguring Thy Resurrection, O Christ our God, Thou tookest with Thee in Thine ascent of Mount Tabor Thy three Disciples, Peter, James and John. When Thou wast transfigured, O Savior,
Mount Tabor was covered with light. Thy Disciples, O Word, threw themselves down upon the ground, unable to gaze upon the form that none may see. The Angels ministered in fear and trembling; the heavens shook and the earth quaked, as they beheld on earth the Lord of Glory.

The Vesperal Doxastikon on the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, after James the Protopsaltis (+1800) chanted by a choir of hagiorite monks from the Holy Monastery of Iberon, Mount Athos (live recording 2002):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3k-v18deIg

The hymn while it's one text and is chanted as a whole, it contains all eight modes of Byzantine Music (octoechos); what's interesting is that each verse is chanted in one of those eight modes and the authentic mode is immediately followed by its corresponding plagal:

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι (Mode 1st)
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν
Glory to the Father and to Son and to the Holy Spirit
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen

Θεαρχίῳ νεύματι, πάντοθεν οἱ θεοφόροι Ἀπόστολοι, ὑπὸ νεφῶν μεταρσίως αἰρόμενοι (Μode 1st)
With a sign by the authority of God, the god-bearing Apostles, having been delivered upon clouds from all around the world

Καταλαβόντες τὸ πανάχραντον, καὶ ζωαρχικόν σου σκῆνος, ἐξόχως ἠσπάζοντο (Mode Pl. of 1st)
and having reached your immaculate and life-delivering body, venerated it resplendently

Αἱ δὲ ὑπέρτατοι τῶν οὐρανῶν Δυνάμεις, σὺν τῷ οἰκείῳ Δεσπότῃ παραγενόμεναι (Mode 2nd)
And the sublime Forces of the Heavens, present along with our Lord

Τὸ θεοδόχον καὶ ἀκραιφνέστατον σῶμα προπέμπουσι, τῷ δέει κρατούμεναι, ὑπερκοσμίως δὲ προῴχοντο, καὶ ἀοράτως ἐβόων, ταῖς ἀνωτέραις ταξιαρχίαις· ἰδοὺ ἡ παντάνασσα θεόπαις παραγέγονεν (Mode Pl. of 2nd)
escorted your god-receiving and impeccable relic, filled with awe, preceeding the heavenly procession and resounding invisibly to the Higher Battalions: Behold, the Queen of all, who bore the God-child, has arrived!

Ἄρατε πύλας, καὶ ταύτην ὑπερκοσμίως ὑποδέξασθε, τὴν τοῦ ἀενάου φωτὸς Μητέρα (Mode 3rd)
Raise the Gates and welcome her celestially, her, the Mother of the eternal Light!

Διὰ ταύτης γὰρ ἡ παγγενὴς τῶν βροτῶν σωτηρία γέγονεν, ᾗ ἀτενίζειν οὐκ ἰσχύομεν, καὶ ταύτῃ ἄξιον γέρας ἀπονέμειν ἀδύνατον (Mode Grave)
Through her came about the deliverance of the entire genre of the mortals. And to gaze upon her surpasses our powers, nor is it possible to offer her a Praise worthy enough

Ταύτης γὰρ τὸ ὑπερβάλλον, ὑπερέχει πᾶσαν ἔννοιαν (Mode 4th)
For her excessive glory surmounts every perception

Διὸ ἄχραντε Θεοτόκε, ἀεὶ σὺν ζωηφόρῳ Βασιλεῖ, καὶ τόκῳ ζῶσα, πρέσβευε διηνεκῶς, περιφρουρῆσαι καὶ σῶσαι, ἀπὸ πάσης προσβολῆς ἐναντίας τὴν νεολαίαν σου· τὴν γὰρ σὴν προστασίαν κεκτήμεθα (Mode Pl. of 4th)
Immaculate Mother of God, you who forever lives along with your life-giving King and son, intercede always so that your people shall be protected and delivered from every assault for we have been gifted with your protection

Εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, ἀγλαοφανῶς μακαρίζοντες (Mode 1st)
Unto the ages of ages, we bless you in all your radiant glory.

The Archon Protopsaltis of the Ecumenical Patriarchate (1960-1964) Thrasyboulos Stanitsas (+1987) chants "It is truly Meet", the so-called Πατριαρχικόν (Patriarchal) in Mode Pl. of 1st (presumably it's after Markos Vasileiou +1919): 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NFxJz702Tw

Ἄξιον ἐστίν ὡς ἀληθῶς μακαρίζειν σὲ τὴν Θεοτόκον τὴν ἀειμακάριστον καὶ παναμώμητον καὶ μητέρα τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν. Τὴν τιμιωτέραν τῶν Χερουβείμ καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν ἀσυγκρίτως τῶν Σεραφείμ τὴν ἀδιαφθόρως Θεόν Λόγον τεκοῦσαν, τὴν ὄντως Θεοτόκον σὲ μεγαλύνομεν.

It is truly Meet and right to bless you, O Theotokos, ever blessed and most pure, and the Mother of our God. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, without defilement you gave birth to God the Word. True Theotokos, we magnify you.

The "O Virgin Theotokos" of Artoklasia (Blessing of the Loaves) after Manuel Goutas (+late 17th c.) in Mode 1st, chanted by hagiorite monks (live recording, Mount Athos 2009):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW0ntcpweRU

Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν
Θεοτόκε Παρθένε χαῖρε κεχαριτωμένη Μαρία ὁ Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ εὐλογημένη σὺ ἐν γυναιξὶ καὶ εὐλογημένος ὁ καρπός τῆς κοιλίας σου ὅτι Σωτῆρα ἔτεκες τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν

Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen
O Virgin Theotokos, Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, for you have borne the Saviour of our souls

The 9th ode of the canon of the Dormition of the Theotokos, after Monk Andrew the Hagiorite (+2004), Mode 1st, chanted by the choir of the Holy Monastery of Iberon, Mount Athos (live recording, 2011):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8lcfVtBycc

Αἱ γενεαὶ πᾶσαι μακαρίζομέν σε τὴν μόνη Θεοτόκον.
Νενίκηνται τῆς φύσεως οἱ ὅροι, ἐν σοὶ Παρθένε ἄχραντε· παρθενεύει γὰρ τόκος, καὶ ζωὴν προμνηστεύεται θάνατος. Ἡ μετὰ τὸκον Παρθένος, καὶ μετὰ θάνατον ζῶσα, σῴζοις ἀεί, Θεοτόκε, τὴν κληρονομίαν σου.

All generations bless thee, O thou only Theotokos.
In thee, O spotless Virgin, the laws of nature were suspended; for thy virginity was preserved in thy child-bearing, and Life is joined with death. Thou, O Theotokos, didst remain a Virgin after child-birth, and after death thou art still alive and dost ever deliver thy heritage.

A blessed feast to all.

It's OK I'll find something for September 14 ;)

The ancient and extended "Save Thy people" in Mode 1st chanted by the choirs of the Holy Monastery of Karakallou (Mount Athos) and the Brotherhood of Danielians (Mount Athos) (note that on Mount Athos there are brotherhoods of monks that are almost exclusively dedicated to Byzantine Music such as the Παχωμαῖοι (Pachomeans), Θωμᾶδες (Thomades), Καρτσωναῖοι (Kartsoneans, named after the founder of their brotherhood fr. Gabriel Kartsonas who fell asleep in the Lord in +1956), Δανιηλαῖοι (Danielians), who either reside at Sketes, of small establishments called Kathismas), live recording (2009):

Σῶσον, Κύριε, τὸν λαόν σου, καὶ εὐλόγησον τὴν κληρονομίαν σου, νίκας τοῖς βασιλεῦσι, κατὰ βαρβάρων δωρούμενος, καὶ τὸ σὸν φυλάττων, διὰ τοῦ Σταυροῦ Σου πολίτευμα

^Indeed it's the traditional and extended version which is not so commonly chanted in parish churches, it's preferred in monasteries though. Something similar happens with the Anoixantaria too, the first version below, is chanted in monasteries, the second one can be heard rarely in parish churches, the third one is by far preferred in parish churches.

The ancient and extended "Anoixantaria" (last verses of Psalm 103/104) known as τὰ Μέγιστα (the Great) after st. Ioannis Papadopoulos "Koukouzelis" (+14th. c.), Mode Pl. of 4th, chanted by hagiorite monks (live recording, Μount Athos):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EJF7SLn3ac

Ἀνοίξαντός σου τὴν χεῖρα, τὰ σύμπαντα πλησθήσονται χρηστότητος, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός.
Thou openest Thy hand, they are filled with good, glory be to thee O God.

Ἀποστρέψαντος δέ σου τὸ πρόσωπον ταραχθήσονται, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός.
Thou hidest Thy face, they are troubled, glory be to thee O God.
 
Ἀντανελεῖς τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐκλείψουσι, δόξα σοι Πάτερ, δόξα σοι Υἱέ, δόξα σοι τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον, δόξα σοι.
Thou takest away Thy breath, they die, glory be to thee O Father, glory be to thee O Son, glory be to thee O Holy Spirit, glory be to thee.

Καὶ εἰς τὸν χοῦν αὐτῶν ἐπιστρέψουσιν, δόξα σοι Πάτερ, δόξα σοι Υἱέ, δόξα σοι τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον, δόξα σοι.
And return to their dust, glory be to thee O Father, glory be to thee O Son, glory be to thee O Holy Spirit, glory be to thee.
 
Ἐξαποστελεῖς τὸ πνεῦμά σου, καὶ κτισθήσονται, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός.
Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created, glory be to thee O God.

Καὶ ἀνακαινιεῖς τὸ πρόσωπον τῆς γῆς, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός.
And thou renewest the face of the earth, glory be to thee O God.

Πάντα ἐν σοφίᾳ ἐποίησας, δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
In wisdom hast thou made them all, glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν, Ἀλληλούϊα.
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen, Alleluia.

Ἀλληλούϊα, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός, Ἀλληλούϊα.

ᾌσω τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν τῇ ζωῇ μου, ψαλῶ τῷ Θεῷ μου ἕως ὑπάρχω, δόξα σοι Πάτερ, δόξα σοι Υἱέ, δόξα σοι τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον, Τριάς Ἁγία δόξα σοι, δόξα σοι ὁ Θεός.
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live, I will sing praise to my God while I have my being, glory be to thee O Father, glory be to thee O Son, glory be to thee O Holy Spirit, O Holy Trinity glory be to thee, glory be to thee O God.

Serbian Orthodox byzantine chant by the choir of st. John Damascen school
(very interesting pieces like troparion to st. John Damascene, Nativity Canon, psalms etc. - in each video there are a few pieces separated by a short talk about church singing)

An update: now most of their videos are public on youtube, there are some new recordings

The Katavasias for the Dormition of the Theotokos, after Peter the Peloponnesian (+1778), Mode 1st, chanted by the "Agrinion Byzantine Choir":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKusKNT5I6M

Ὠδὴ α'.
Πεποικιλμένη τῇ θείᾳ δόξῃ, ἡ ἱερὰ καὶ εὐκλεής, Παρθένε μνήμη Σου, πάντας συνηγάγετο, πρὸς εὐφροσύνην τοὺς πιστούς, ἐξαρχούσης Μαριάμ, μετὰ χορῶν καὶ τυμπάνων, τῷ Σῷ ᾄδοντας Μονογενεῖ· Ἐνδόξως ὅτι δεδόξασται.
Ode 1st.
Thy sacred and renowned memorial, O Virgin, is clothed in the embroidered raiment of divine glory. It hath brought all the faithful together in joy, and led by Miriam, with dances and timbrels, they sing the praises of thine Only-begotten Son: For He hath been greatly glorified.

Ὠδὴ γ'.
Ἡ δημιουργική, καὶ συνεκτικὴ τῶν ἁπάντων, Θεοῦ σοφία καὶ δύναμις, ἀκλινῆ ἀκράδαντον, τὴν Ἐκκλησίαν στήριξον Χριστέ· μόνος γὰρ εἶ Ἅγιος, ὁ ἐν Ἁγίοις ἀναπαυόμενος.
Ode 3rd.
O Christ, the Wisdom and the Power of God, who dost create and uphold all, establish the Church unshaken and unwavering: for only Thou art holy, who hast Thy resting place among the saints.

Ὠδὴ δ'.
Ῥήσεις προφητῶν καὶ αἰνίγματα, τὴν σάρκωσιν ὑπέφηναν, τὴν ἐκ Παρθένου Σου, Χριστέ, φέγγος ἀστραπῆς Σου, εἰς φῶς ἐθνῶν ἐξελεύσεσθαι· καὶ φωνεῖ Σοι ἄβυσσος, ἐν ἀγαλλιάσει· Τῇ δυνάμει Σου δόξα Φιλάνθρωπε
Ode 4th.
The dark sayings and riddles of the prophets foreshadowed Thine incarnation from a Virgin, O Christ, even the lightening of Thy brightness which was to come as light to lighten the gentiles; and the deep utters its voice to Thee in joy: ‘Glory to Thy power, O Thou who lovest mankind.’

Ὠδὴ ε'.
Τὸ θεῖον καὶ ἄρρητον κάλλος, τῶν ἀρετῶν Σου, Χριστέ, διηγήσομαι· ἐξ ἀιδίου γὰρ δόξης συναΐδιον, καὶ ἐνυπόστατον λάμψας ἀπαύγασμα, παρθενικῆς ἀπὸ γαστρός, τοῖς ἐν σκότει καὶ σκιᾷ, σωματωθεὶς ἀνέτειλας ἥλιος.
Ode 5th.
I shall declare the divine and ineffable beauty of Thine excellencies, O Christ. For Thou hast shone forth in Thine own Person as the co-eternal brightness from the eternal glory, and taking flesh from a virgin’s womb, Thou hast arisen as the sun, giving light to those that were in darkness and shadow.

Ὠδὴ ς'.
Ἅλιον ποντογενές, κητῷον ἐντόσθιον πῦρ, τῆς τριημέρου ταφῆς Σου τὶ προεικόνισμα, οὗ Ἰωνᾶς, ὑποφήτης ἀναδέδεικται· σεσωσμένος γὰρ ὡς καὶ προὐπέπωτο, ἀσινὴς ἐβόα· Θύσω Σοι μετὰ φωνῆς, αἰνέσεως Κύριε.
Ode 6th.
The fire within the whale, the monster dwelling in the salt waters of the sea, was a prefiguring of Thy three days’ burial, and Jonah acted as interpreter. For, saved and unharmed, as though he had never been swallowed, he cried aloud: ‘I will sacrifice unto Thee with the voice of praise, O Lord.’

Ὠδὴ ζ'.
Ἰταμῷ θυμῷ τε καὶ πυρί, θεῖος ἔρως ἀντιταττόμενος, τὸ μὲν πῦρ ἐδρόσιζε, τῷ θυμῷ δὲ ἐγέλα, θεοπνεύστῳ λογικῇ, τῇ τῶν ὁσίων τριφθόγγῳ λύρᾳ ἀντιφθεγγόμενος, μουσικοῖς ὀργάνοις, ἐν μέσῳ φλογός· Ὁ δεδοξασμένος, τῶν πατέρων καὶ ἡμῶν, Θεὸς εὐλογητὸς εἶ.
Ode 7th.
Divine Love, fighting against cruel wrath and fire, quenched the fire with dew and laughed the wrath to scorn, making the three-stringed harp of the saints inspired by God sing in the midst of the flames in answer to the instruments of music: ‘Blessed art Thou, O most glorious God, our God and the God of our fathers.’

Ὠδὴ η'.
Αἰνοῦμεν, εὐλογοῦμεν καὶ προσκυνοῦμεν τὸν Κύριον.

Φλόγα δροσίζουσαν ὁσίους, δυσσεβεῖς δὲ καταφλέγουσαν, ἄγγελος Θεοῦ ὁ πανσθενής, ἔδειξε Παισί· ζωαρχικὴν δὲ πηγήν, εἰργάσατο τὴν Θεοτόκον, φθορὰν θανάτου καὶ ζωήν, βλυστάνουσαν τοῖς μέλπουσι· Τὸν Δημιουργὸν μόνον ὑμνοῦμεν, οἱ λελυτρωμένοι, καὶ ὑπερυψοῦμεν, εἰς πάντας τοὺς αἰῶνας.
Ode 8th.
We praise, we bless, we worship the Lord.

The all-powerful Angel of God revealed to the Children a flame, that brought refreshment to the holy while it consumed the ungodly. And He made the Theotokos into a life-giving fount, gushing forth to the destruction of death and to the life of those that sing: ‘We who have been delivered praise the one and only Creator and exalt Him above all forever.’

Ὠδὴ θ'.
Αἱ γενεαὶ πᾶσαι, μακαρίζομέν Σε, τὴν μόνην Θεοτόκον.

Νενίκηνται τῆς φύσεως οἱ ὅροι, ἐν Σοὶ Παρθένε ἄχραντε· παρθενεύει γὰρ τόκος, καὶ ζωὴν προμνηστεύεται θάνατος. Ἡ μετὰ τόκον παρθένος, καὶ μετὰ θάνατον ζῶσα, σῴζοις ἀεί, Θεοτόκε τὴν κληρονομίαν Σου.
Ode 9th.
All generations bless thee, O thou only Theotokos.

In thee, O Virgin without spot, the bounds of nature are overcome: for childbirth remains virgin and death is betrothed to life.  O Theotokos, Virgin after bearing child and alive after death, do thou ever save thine inheritance.

"It is truly meet" after Michael Khadziathanassiou (+1948) in Mode 1st, chanted by the nuns of the Holy Convent of the Annunciation, Ormylia, Greece:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PetDuyA3unI

Ἄξιον ἐστίν ὡς ἀληθῶς μακαρίζειν σὲ τὴν Θεοτόκον τὴν ἀειμακάριστον καὶ παναμώμητον καὶ μητέρα τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν. Τὴν τιμιωτέραν τῶν Χερουβείμ καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν ἀσυγκρίτως τῶν Σεραφείμ τὴν ἀδιαφθόρως Θεόν Λόγον τεκοῦσαν, τὴν ὄντως Θεοτόκον σὲ μεγαλύνομεν.

It is truly Meet and right to bless you, O Theotokos, ever blessed and most pure, and the Mother of our God. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, without defilement you gave birth to God the Word. True Theotokos, we magnify you.

Russian youth st. John Damascene Orthodox choir (Детско-юношеский хор имени прп. Иоанна Дамаскина) has just released a new CD, called Rays of Byzantium ; there are a few recordings from this album (they sing in Church Slavonic and Greek, using Byzantine chant):
http://damaskinhor.ru/publish62.html
(1. Dormition troparion
2. Dormition exapostilarion
3. Kontakion To thee, the Champion Leader
4. Troparion to the Holy Fathers of Mount Athos)

The album features chants for various feasts of the year, including the troparion to newly-canonised st. elder Paisios.


They had recorded a few other albums, two of them can be downloaded legally from predanie.ru
1. Pascha of the believers (featuring a few chants for the Holy Week and mainly for Pascha, in my opinion one of the best recordings of the Paschal canon ever)
2. Sing and rejoice
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

^^The problem with Russian mostly (not so with Serbian or Bulgarian) Byzantine chanting, is that while the Russians have very good choirs, with amazing voices, the scales they're chanting are not Byzantine, the Russians are used in the fixed/tempered western scales and that is quite obvious. But they're very-very good, with dozens (if not hundreds) of hours of rehearsal.

The extended "Lord, I cry unto thee" of the vesperal "Kekragaria" (the first verses from Psalm 140/141) after st. John Damascene (+756), Mode 1st, chanted by Panagiotis Neochoritis (live recording, 2011):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx1helI267g

Kύριε, ἐκέκραξα πρὸς σέ, εἰσάκουσόν μου Κύριε· Kύριε, ἐκέκραξα πρὸς σέ, εἰσάκουσόν μου πρόσχες τῇ φωνῇ τῆς δεήσεώς μου ἐν τῷ κεκραγέναι με πρὸς σέ εἰσάκουσόν μου Κύριε.
Lord, I cry unto thee, make haste unto me O Lord; Lord, I cry unto thee, make haste unto me, give ear unto my voice of supplication, when I cry unto thee, make haste unto me O Lord.

The extended "Lord, I cry unto thee" of the vesperal "Kekragaria" (the first verses from Psalm 140/141) after James the Protopsaltis (+1800), Mode 2nd, chanted by Thrasyboulos Stanitsas (+1987) live recording (1971):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCOeoJU9ZsU

The short and common version of the vesperal "Kekragaria" (the first verses from Psalm 140/141) after Peter the Peloponnesian (+1778), Mode 3rd, chanted by "The Trikki's Melodists" (live recording, 2008):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_Sb5LNzruU

Kύριε, ἐκέκραξα πρὸς σέ, εἰσάκουσόν μου Κύριε· Kύριε, ἐκέκραξα πρὸς σέ, εἰσάκουσόν μου πρόσχες τῇ φωνῇ τῆς δεήσεώς μου ἐν τῷ κεκραγέναι με πρὸς σέ εἰσάκουσόν μου Κύριε.
Lord, I cry unto thee, make haste unto me O Lord; Lord, I cry unto thee, make haste unto me, give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee, make haste unto me O Lord.

Κατευθυνθήτω ἡ προσευχή μου ὡς θυμίαμα ἐνώπιόν σου, ἔπαρσις τῶν χειρῶν μου θυσία ἑσπερινή, εἰσάκουσόν μου Κύριε.
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice, make haste unto me O Lord.
