Just curious for all you chanters and readers out there. How many of you read/chant the Eclogarion immediately after the Polyeleos for 1st and 2nd class feasts at Orthros/Matins? I read the Eclogarion for Nativity and it is wonderful and I would like to incorporate at least a select number of verses after the Polyeleos. If you do not, may I ask why?
Also, does anyone know what tone the eclogaria are to be chanted? The same as the Polyeleos (Tones 1 and 5)?
One more thing, if the Eclogarion were omitted for a 1st or 2nd class feast (for time, or for whatever reason), should a Glory...Both now still be chanted with the three fold alleulia?
