My husband is leaving soon. He really wants a CD of the Akathist to the Mother of God in it's entirety. Specifically if he could find the arrangement that Saint Romanus (his patron saint) wrote. English is preferable. We bought a CD by Eikona that while beautiful, is not the entire Akathist. Anyone have a suggestion?

I am unaware that such a thing exists in Greek (and am quite certain that it doesn't exist in English).  However, the recording by the Convent of Ormylia is nearly complete.  It can be ordered from   

O Lord although I desired to blot out
with my tears the handwriting of my many sins
And for the rest of my life to please Thee
through sincere repentance
Yet doth the enemy lead me astray as he wareth
against my sould with his cunning

O Lord before I utterly perish do Thou save me!
