Needed: Little Octoechos (Parkletike)
« on: October 21, 2009, 05:24:59 PM »
Does anyone know where I can find, online or in printed form, the little Octoechos?  I have it for use at Vespers but as my priest wants to start doing Daily Matins, I need the daily poetic kathismata (for simple commemorations and doxology rank commemorations) after the readings from the Psalter as well as the aposticha of the Ainoi.  If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know.   Thanks.

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.

This is one of the most difficult things to learn, it really takes years to fully learn how to put the canon all together. If you are in a parish I am not sure why you need to learn all this since it takes several hours to chant the canon in this manner.

^Thanks, Schultz.  I wished it had the canons in there, but it does have the sessional hymns and aposticha for daily Orthros.  It will help greatly.
