NOTICE: SOME CHANGES TO THE REGULAR BLUE BOOK. NAMELY ANTIPHONS, TONES, PROKEIMENON, THEOTOKION AND CREED ARE DIFFERENT. PRAISE THE LORD FROM THE HEAVENS. (PAGE 28 Pre communion hymn is different)
UPDATE ANTAPHON CADENCE:
This uses the Blue Book, however instead of the Antiphons,
Antiphon 1) we sing “Through the Intercessions” as a response to the Chanter.
Antiphon 2) The second Antiphon we respond with “Oh Son of God…” but the Second Phrase you must use the Transfiguration Lyrics below, (Transfiguration) .
Antiphon 3) The Third Antiphon is chanted by the Chanter, and then the response is the Tropar Tone 7 below “You were transfigured on the mountain o Christ God…”
Below are the special Tropar and Kontakions and Prokeimenon for this week:
Tropar Tone 7
Kontakion Tone 7
Prokiemenon is tone 4
WE ALSO SING THE CREED THIS WEEK AND THE FOLLOWING 2 WEEKS (Not to be chanted or spoken)
Instead of the Theotokion we sing weekly (It is truly Meet …) we now sing this
Magnify o my soul tone 6
KOINONIKON: (Replaces Praises the Lord from the Heavens, Praise Him in the Highest, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.) PG 28
