I would love more information on the historical development of the Great Vespers of Pentecost. I just read the text, and it sound truly amazing! I really can't wait until this Sunday, when I will be able to expirence it first hand, but I was just wondering the history behind this service.

Are you talking about the "Kneeling Prayers" (Byzantine rite), or the Vespers served on the eve of Pentecost Sunday?

Yes, the "kneeling" prayers usually done right after Divine Liturgy on Pentecost Sunday, here is a link to the text:
