Following Orthros before the Liturgy
Posted 26 April 2010 - 11:46 PM
However, there are numerous sources of service texts that are already compiled. One excellent source is Fr. Seraphim, who regularly posts the text of Orthros services for Sundays and many Feasts in Greek and English (for free): http://sgpm.goarch.o...tins/matins.htm.

Sal, Vespers (Esperinos) and Matins (Orthros) are not "standardised" services. While there is a structure to them, what will be read, said and sung during these services greatly depends on the day of the week, and/or the rank of feast which is celebrated. Unlike the Divine Liturgy, which varies only slightly in specific areas on any given Sunday, barely a third of Matins is a "fixed" text. The rest, to put it simply, is hymns of the day or feast. The links that others have provided should help, as these should provide these variable portions of the hymnody (what is read, said and sug). However, in my experience, check with your priest or choir director as to what basic structure is used in your parish. Even in this there may be variations from parish to parish.
