Does anyone really care what you think?

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.

Check out podoben.com.

Look under mixed chorus/Great Lent/Vespers of Holy Saturday and check out Come, Let us Bless Joseph.  This may be what you are looking for.

In the Slavic tradition, this hymn is sung during the veneration of the Plashchenitsa (The Holy Shroud) after Vespers and Matins of Holy Saturday.

Zastupnice christianov nepostydnaja, chodatajice ko Tvorcu nepreložnaja, ne prezri hr’išnych molenij hlasy, popredvari jako blahaja na pomošč nas, virno vopijuščich ti: Uskori na molitvu, i potščisja na umolenije, zastupajušči prisno Bohorodice, čtuščich t’a.

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!?)?

The only online version of the text I know is found here... http://www.anastasis.org.uk/HWSat-M.htm
The text is also found in the Lamentations publish Holy Nativity Convent in Boston and the Holy Week Service Book published by the Antiochian Archdiocese. The text is as follows...

Quote
When Joseph saw that the sun had hidden its rays and the veil of the temple had been rent in two at the death of the Saviour, he approached Pilate and entreated him, saying, ‘Give me this stranger, who since infancy has been a stranger in the world. Give me this stranger, whom members of his own race hated and slew as a stranger. Give me this stranger, whom I welcome as a stranger as I see the strangeness of his death. Give me this stranger, who knew how to welcome as strangers the poor and those who were strangers. Give me this stranger, whom Hebrews out of envy have made a stranger to the world. Give me this stranger, that I may hide in a tomb one who as a stranger has no place to lay his head. Give me this stranger, whose his mother when she saw him slain cried out, ‘O my Son and my God, though I am wounded to the core and torn to the heart as I see you dead, yet confident in your resurrection, I magnify you’.’ When he had with words like this entreated Pilate, the noble Joseph takes the Saviour’s body, and having in fear wrapped it in a winding sheet with myrrh, he placed in a tomb the One who grants the world eternal life and his great mercy.

I've never seen that hymn or heard it (or at least I don't think I have).  Thanks for the link.  It's not included in my English Holy Week music (Fr. Seraphim Dedes').
