The Estonian composer and Orthodox convert Arvo Pärt wrote some years back a setting of 24 prayers by St. John Chrysostom for every hour of the day and night. Here is the English translation used in the piece.

Does anyone know where I can find the original Greek of these prayers? What is the standard edition, if any, of Chrystostom's works that one should go to in cases like this?

^ Am I reading this right? An Estonian wrote these prayers in Greek? Why not Estonian, or even Russian?

The Estonian wrote music ("a setting") for prayers written by St. John Chrysostom (who wrote in Greek) using an English translation.

Okay, that makes sense. Not that I think someone from one country shouldn't learn another language, but I dislike the silliness of keeping a Church language that the local population can't understand.

It is one of the standard prayers said before sleeping. It features in most Orthodox prayer books. I would have thought a basic Greek prayer book would include it.

As I suggested in my post, I'd prefer to get them from the standard scholarly edition of the writings of St John Chrysostom, whichever that is.
