"propers" for vespers & matins in traditional language
« on: August 31, 2004, 09:07:40 PM »
I have a book with the various hours in a modern style of English and have downloaded the traditional-language form from the internet.  However, I have found the troparia, etc. for each day only in the modern style of language on the internet.  I cannot afford to buy triodion, pentecostarion, and menaion for each month; so, is there any website with these readings for vespers and matins?

Also, how do I find on which days the canon is used at matins and which odes are sung?

I would direct you to pose this question to the priest at your parish.

Regarding Troparia and a few other such things, the Horologion by Holy Transfiguration Monastery has those for the entire year (and the cycle of services as well). It also is in "traditional" language. However,  I think it is about $120, and it is quite large (way too big to hold during an entire service, if that's what you are used to; you'd need a table or podium or something).

On the other hand .... you can just pray simply... if prayer is what you are after that is. :)
