Akathist to St. Herman of Alaska?
« on: February 14, 2006, 08:40:38 PM »
I was just wondering if anybody could help me out? I have to practice my chanting for the Akathist to St. Herman of Alaska. And I was wondering if anybody knew of any places that had free audio of it, so I could work out the tones?

Thanks.

The Akathist tone is quite common..
if you use one Akathist tone, it can be used for all of them.

Yes, typically they follow the same pattern as the one for the Theotokos that is done during Lent... but there can be variation... I know there is (in Greek) a book with just Akathists, but I haven't seen it anywhere other than here at school... I figure there has to be something out there on the 'net with another Akathist to help...

Oh I see, guys. Does anybody have any audio clip of one, so I can just refresh my mind as to what I'm doing?

The goarch.org website has the entire akathist to the Theotokos (in English, and nice English at that!).

Adding to your point, Nektarious. I would recommend this link.
