Vesperal Doxastikon for the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos "By the royal command of God" chanted by the monks of the Holy Monastery of Iveron, Mount Athos in all eight modes of the Byzantine Music (octoechos), after Peter Philanthides (+1920) (live recording, 2002):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3k-v18deIg
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τούς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, Ἀμήν.
Glory to the Father and to the 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.
By the royal command of God, the divinely inspired apostles, were caught up from all over the world by the clouds on high.
Mode Plagal of 1st
Καταλαβόντες τὸ πανάχραντον, καὶ ζωαρχικόν σου σκῆνος, ἐξόχως ἠσπάζοντο.
Reaching thine immaculate body, the source of Life they venerated it with mighty honour.
Αἱ δὲ ὑπέρτατοι τῶν οὐρανῶν Δυνάμεις, σὺν τῷ οἰκείῳ Δεσπότῃ παραγενόμεναι.
The highest Powers of heaven stood by their own Master.
Mode Plagal of 2nd
Τὸ θεοδόχον καὶ ἀκραιφνέστατον σῶμα προπέμπουσι, τῷ δέει κρατούμεναι, ὑπερκοσμίως δὲ προῴχοντο, καὶ ἀοράτως ἐβόων, ταῖς ἀνωτέραις ταξιαρχίαις· ἰδοὺ ἡ παντάνασσα θεόπαις παραγέγονεν.
Seized with dread they accompanied thine inviolate body that had held God, and they went on high before thee, crying unseen to the hierarchies above: "Lo, the Queen of all, the Maid of God, is nigh".
Ἄρατε πύλας, καὶ ταύτην ὑπερκοσμίως ὑποδέξασθε, τὴν τοῦ ἀενάου φωτὸς Μητέρα.
Open wide the gates and receive above the world the Mother of the ever lasting Light.
Διὰ ταύτης γὰρ ἡ παγγενὴς τῶν βροτῶν σωτηρία γέγονεν, ᾗ ἀτενίσαι οὐκ ἰσχύομεν, καὶ ταύτῃ ἄξιον γέρας ἀπονέμειν ἀδύνατον.
For through he the salvation of all mankind has come; we have not the strength to look upon her, and are unable to render honours worthy of her.
Ταύτης γὰρ τὸ ὑπερβάλλον, ὑπερέχει πᾶσαν ἔννοιαν.
For her excellence is past all understanding.
Mode Plagal of 4th
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.
Therefore, O most pure Theotokos who livest forever with thy Son, the King Who brings life, pray without ceasing that thy newborn people be guarded on every side and saved from all adverse assault; for we are under thy protection.
Εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, ἀγλαοφανῶς μακαρίζοντες.
And we bless thee in beauty and light unto all ages.
