Is church music sometimes produced with Orchestra or Symphony?
Holy and God-bearing father, Macarius, through the Power of the All-pervading prayer - Pray to God for us. Amen

An amazing 'It is truly Meet' chanted by the choir of the Holy Athonite Monastery of Vatopedi, in Mode Plagal of 2nd. The composer is unknown:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5G1Zw0MVSA

-Ἐξαιρέτως τῆς Παναγίας, ἀχράντου, ὑπερευλογημένης, ἐνδόξου, Δεσποίνης ἡμῶν Θεοτόκου καὶ ἀειπαρθένου Μαρίας.

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

-Especially for our most holy, pure, blessed, and glorious Lady, the Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary.

It is truly meet to bless thee, O Theotokos, thou the ever blessed, and most pure, and the Mother of our God.
Thou the more honourable than the Cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim, who without corruption gavest birth to God the Word, thou the true Theotokos, we magnify thee.

The communal hymn for the Theometoric feast days, after Peter 'the sweet' Bereketis (+1715), in Mode Grave, chanted by the choir of the Holy Athonite Monastery of Vatopedi:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4GhHYw03LQ&t=6s

Ποτήριον σωτηρίου λήψομαι, καὶ τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου ἐπικαλέσομαι, Ἀλληλούϊα.

I will take the cup of salvation, and I will call upon the name of the Lord, Alleluia.

Ἦχος Πρῶτος

Τέχνη μελουργός, σούς ἀγασθεῖσα κρότους
Πρώτην νέμει σοὶ τάξιν, ὦ τῆς ἀξίας
Ἦχος ὁ πρῶτος μουσική κληθείς τέχνη
Πρῶτος παρ'ἡμῶν εὐλογείσθω τοῖς λόγοις.
Τὰ πρῶτα πρῶτε τῶν καλῶν λαχῶν φέρεις
Πρωτεῖα νίκης πανταχοῦ πάντων ἔχεις.

Vesperal Doxastikon for the feast of the Entrance  into the Temple of the Most Holy Lady Theotokos & Ever-virgin Mary, in Mode Plagal of 4th chanted by the choir of the Holy Athonite Monastery of Vatopedi (live recording, 2016):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0vbFg0wWys

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Μετὰ τὸ τεχθῆναί σε, Θεόνυμφε Δέσποινα, παρεγένου ἐν Ναῷ Κυρίου, τοῦ ἀνατραφῆναι εἰς τὰ Ἅγια τῶν Ἁγίων, ὡς ἡγιασμένη. Τότε καὶ Γαβριὴλ ἀπεστάλη, πρὸς σὲ τὴν πανάμωμον, τροφὴν κομίζων σοι· Τὰ οὐράνια πάντα ἐξέστησαν, ὁρῶντα τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον ἐν σοὶ σκηνῶσαν. Διὸ ἄσπιλε ἀμόλυντε, ἡ ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς δοξαζομένη, Μήτηρ Θεοῦ, σῷζε τὸ γένος ἡμῶν.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen.
O Lady and Bride of God, you entered the Temple of God in your infancy to be brought up in the Holy of Holies, for you are holy. The archangel Gabriel was sent to serve you and bring you food. All the heavenly powers were amazed at the sight of the Holy Spirit dweling in you. Therefore, O most pure and immaculate Theotokos, since you are glorified in heaven and on earth, through your prayers save our human race.

Doxastikon of the Aposticha for the feast of the Entrance into the Temple of the Most Holy Lady Theotokos & Ever-virgin Mary in Mode Plagal of 2nd after Theophanes Vatopedinos, chanted by the Byzantine choir "Tropos" (live recording, Holy Monastery of Sinai, 2013):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbWHcL1sNN8

Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Σήμερον τὰ στίφη τῶν Πιστῶν συνελθόντα, πνευματικῶς πανηγυρίσωμεν, καὶ τὴν θεόπαιδα Παρθένον καὶ Θεοτόκον, ἐν Ναῷ Κυρίου προσαγομένην, εὐσεβῶς ἀνευφημήσωμεν· τὴν προεκλεχθεῖσαν ἐκ πασῶν τῶν γενεῶν, εἰς κατοικητήριον τοῦ Παντάνακτος Χριστοῦ, καὶ Θεοῦ τῶν ὅλων, Παρθένοι, λαμπαδηφοροῦσαι προπορεύεσθε, τῆς Ἀειπαρθένου τιμῶσαι, τὴν σεβάσμιον πρόοδον, Μητέρες, λύπην πᾶσαν ἀποθέμεναι, χαρμονικῶς συνακολουθήσατε, ὑμνοῦσαι τὴν Μητέρα τοῦ Θεοῦ γενομένην, καὶ τῆς χαρᾶς τοῦ κόσμου τὴν πρόξενον. Ἅπαντες οὖν χαρμονικῶς, τὸ χαῖρε σὺν τῷ Ἀγγέλῳ ἐκβοήσωμεν, τῇ Κεχαριτωμένῃ, τῇ ἀεὶ πρεσβευούσῃ, ὑπὲρ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen.
Today let us the assembled faithful triumph in spirit! Let us reverently praise the child of God, Virgin and Theotokos as she is offered in the Temple of the Lord. She who was forechosen from all generations to be the dwelling-place of Christ, the Master and God of all. Virgins bearing lamps, go before her, honouring the majestic advance of the ever-Virgin! Mothers, set aside every sorrow to follow them in gladness, singing the praises of her who became the Mother of God and mediator of joy for the world! With the angel, let us all joyfully cry: Rejoice! To her, for she is the joyous one who ever intercedes for our souls!
