This is one of my favorite portions(don't really know how to term it). In the Greek monasteries where they have the large chandeliers, they'll swing the chandelier while this is being sung. The whole thing is just beautiful.

Here it is in English: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3PWNyBddvg

Yes, we chant it while people are in the communion line, albeit in English. I love it...
