The Service of the Akathist Hymn: The Salutations to the Most Holy Theotokos

Translated from the Greek by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery

“Theologically, poetically, and musically, one of the most profound and beautiful compositions bequeathed to us by Byzantium’s sacred hymnographers is the Akathist Hymn to the Most Holy Theotokos. In this unparalleled composition, Orthodox Christianity bears eloquent witness to its unshaken belief in the mystery of the Incarnation of the Son of God, and the Church’s devotion to the ‘Virgin who conceived and bore a Son.’ [...]In this translation we have presented the service as it is chanted the first four weeks [of the Great Fast], and, in a separate section, the Akathist Hymn and Canon as they are combined on the fifth week. This has necessitated a duplication of texts, but has allowed us to dispense with the complex rubrics that are necessary if one text is to serve for both arrangements.”
