Also, in addendum (probably should have started a new topic for this one), I need to know how to chant a canon correctly. Once I have all the materials needed for a canon (from the Parakliti), I have a few more questions. According to my typicon chart for daily Orthros, after Odes 3 and 6, I am to chant the irmos as Katavasia. What do I chant as katavasia for Odes 1, 4, 5 and 7? For Ode 8, for a doxology rank commemoration, my typicon chart (http://www.dowama.org/sites/docs/Chart1.pdf
) tells me to chant the seasonal Katavasia which would be from the Canon for the Theotokos but otherwise, for a simple commemoration, to chant the irmos of Ode 8. So what should I do for the other four odes as far as their katavasiae goe?
Also, do the Theotokia count as one of the troparia when I am trying to make 14? Also, if I need to repeat one troparion to make it to the prescribed number of troparia, is it more desireable to chant the first one twice or what? Also, do you chant Glory...Both now only with the last canon or do you chant Glory...both now with the final troparion and theotokion of every canon?
Sorry, lots of questions and I'm not finding a lot of helpful information elsewhere. Many thanks.
