Does anyone know where i can find the "Akathist Service to Our Lady of Sitka" with other "Alaskan Liturgical Hymns", to read?

I have the CD of this Akathist Service to Our lady of Sitka, and it's really beautiful! I just want it now in text so i can follow along. This Akathist i have is sung by the Diocese of Alaska Clergy Choir.

Please and Thank you.

I have that CD too.  Isn't it beautiful?  I did a google search and this is what I came up with for the text of the akathist.  I think it is the same one as on the CD:

Click onto this website:

http://dioceseofalaska.org/

Scroll a little ways down until you see a picture of the CD on the right (It is black with a picture of the icon of Our Lady of Sitka.)  Click onto the CD picture and you will get an order form to fill out and send in by old fashioned mail, along with the money for the CD.  

It is a beautiful akathist, which lasts about 45 minutes.  After the akathist, they have other liturgical hymns sung in the native Alaskan languages, like Aleut.  It is really a unique CD.

Yes, the Akathist is really beautiful! I play it all the time now since i got it, even when i'm playing Poker.  Tongue Thank you for the link, this is exactly what i'm looking for. My search is done; thank you sooo much!  Grin

The reader at my Church gave me a copy. I'm sure you can find it somewhere on the net. It's a beautiful one to have!
