I have several different version of the text of the idiomel that is sung at the conclusion of the Holy Saturday Orthros that is commonly called "The Stranger" but I have yet to find a musical setting of it in English or even a recording of it in English. Does anyone have a source? The only music I have is one in Arabic with Byzantine notation and the only recording I have is in Greek.
At the conclusion... When do you mean? Are you referring to the Glory hymn just before the Doxology? Or is it something else (that I can't seem to find!?)?

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
