Compline

Christ is Risen!

I was wondering what you would do regarding the troparion during compline during the paschal season would you chant the daily troparion and then the paschal troparion or vice versa or just one or the other

In Christ
Seraphim
All my hope I place in you, O Mother of God, keep me under your protection!

During Bright Week Compline is not said and is instead replaced by the Paschal Office. The daily offices after bright week are normal with the addition of "Christ is Risen..." at the start and the Paschal ending.

The same with the Midnight Office and the Hours. So the daily cycle becomes Paschal Office, Matins, Paschal Office, Vespers, Paschal Office.

The HTM Horologion adds an evening prayer to be read at the end of the Paschal Office when it replaces Compline, but I haven't seen it in any other Horologia as far as I can remember.

Just to correct myself, the same Compline prayer also appears in my Greek Horologion.
