1st Hour
Mode Pl. 4th
Poem by St. Sophronios Patriarch of Jerusalem
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. Μαρία, τὶ τὸ δρᾶμα τοῦτο, ὃ ἐν σοὶ τεθέαμαι; ἀντὶ τιμῆς αἰσχύνην, ἀντ' εὐφροσύνης, τὴν λύπην, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπαινεῖσθαι, τὸν ψόγον μοι προσήγαγες. Οὐκ ἔτι φέρω λοιπόν, τὸ ὄνειδος ἀνθρώπων· ὑπὸ γὰρ Ἱερέων ἐκ τοῦ ναοῦ, ὡς ἄμεμπτον Κυρίου σὲ παρέλαβον· καὶ τὶ τὸ ὁρώμενον;

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?"

3rd Hour
Mode Pl. 2nd
Poem by St. Sophronios Patriarch of Jerusalem
Οὗτος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, οὐ λογισθήσεται ἕτερος πρὸς αὐτόν, ὁ τεχθεὶς ἐκ Παρθένου, καὶ τοῖς ἀνθρώποις συναναστραφείς. 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.

Mode 3rd
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων ἀμήν
Ἰωσήφ, εἰπὲ ἡμῖν, πῶς ἐκ τὼν ἁγίων ἣν παρέλαβες Κόρην, ἔγκυον φέρεις ἐν Βηθλεέμ; Ἐγὼ φησι, τοὺς Προφήτας ἐρευνήσας, καὶ χρηματισθεὶς ὑπὸ Ἀγγέλου, πέπεισμαι, ὅτι Θεὸν γεννήσει ἡ Μαρία ἀνερμηνεύτως· οὗ εἰς προσκύνησιν, Μάγοι ἐξ Ἀνατολῶν ἥξουσι, σὺν δώροις τιμίοις λατρεύοντες. Ὁ σαρκωθεὶς δι' ἡμᾶς, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.

Glory to the Father nad to the Son and the Holy Spirit
Now and ever and to the ages of ages amen
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:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdCSrEa5eLg
Επί τῶν ποταμῶν Βαβυλῶνος ἐκεῖ ἐκαθίσαμεν καὶ ἐκλαύσαμεν ἐν τῷ μνησθῆναι ἡμᾶς τῆς Σιών. Ἀλληλούια.

Ἐὰν μὴ προανατάξωμαι τὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ὡς ἐν ἀρχῇ τῆς εὐφροσύνης μου, 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.
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, Alleluia.
If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy, Alleluia.

Two pieces by an Arabic Greek Catholic choir (melchite):
St. Nectarios hymn in Arabic
Theotokos kontakion (To Thee The Champion) in Greek

I don't suport such way of singing, it's just out of curiosity

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.

The Holy Wednesday Matins Doxastikon (Hymn of Kassiani) after Peter the Peloponnesian in Mode Plagal of 4th, "En Psalterio Choir" (live recording 2013):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf2HgYcimPs

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?
Wherefore, O my Saviour and the Deliverer of my soul turn not away from Thy handmaiden O Thou of boundless mercy.
Ἄνωθεν οἱ Προφῆται. Ἦχος Βαρύς.

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!

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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).

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.

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):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5DrnEuKNnQ

The 15th Antiphon by the same choir (Mode Plagal of 2nd):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ph9DItfx1No

Impressive!

The Paschal Communion Hymn "Receive ye the Body of Christ, taste ye the Fountain of immortality" after Balasios the Priest (late 17th c.) in Mode 1st, Vatopedi Choir:
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.

Great stuff, Apostolos, thank you.

Do you have some special versions of Idou o Nymphios and other chants of the Megali Deftera liturgy? I'm particularly fond of those chants.
