With the canonization of the blessed Saint Paisios the New today, I was wondering who determines/how it is determined what modes/tones the hymns to newly canonized Saints will be? Also, are the poets and hymnographers selected by the ruling bishop of a Church, or what? Are there numerous "entries"? Thanks!

I'm not a liturgist or anything, but I do recall that when St John of San Francisco was glorfied the service was commissioned by the Synod of Bishops and Archbishop Anthony of San Francisco (who was a talented and highly respected liturgist) was given the task by the Synod to compose the service. How he determined and chose the tones etc, I don't know.
