The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented, Volume III: The Occasional Services

   
Translated from Church Slavonic with notes by St. Tikhon’s Monastery

Volume III of The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented

“The Offices, Orders, Prayers, and Blessings found in Volumes III and IV of the Great Book of Needs have been compiled and translated from the (Velikii) Trebnik ((Great) Book of Needs) published in Kiev, at the Kiev-Caves Lavra (1902), supplemented by the (Velikii) Trebnik ((Great) Book of Needs) published in Moscow (1884), the Trebnik (Book of Needs) also published in Moscow (two volumes—1902) and the Dopolnitel’nii Trebnik (Supplementary Book of Needs) published at Holy Trinity Monastery (1961). Volumes III and IV of the Great Book of Needs has also been augmented by various Moliebens taken from the Posledovanie Molebnyik Penii (Office of Supplicatory Hymns) published in St. Petersburg (1893). In addition, material has been taken from The Office of the Parastasis, that is, the Great Panikhida and All-night Vigil, Sung for Those Who Have Fallen Asleep (Послҍдование парастаса, сирҍчь великіѧ паніхѵды и всенощнагѡ бдҍніѧ, пҍваемыхъ по усопшымь), printed in St. Petersburg (1903), and The Office of Commemoration of the Departed, which is the Panikhida (Послҍдование Поминовенїя усопшихъ, еже есть Паннѵхіда) (1904)[...].”
