Does anyone happen to know the history of some of our hymns? Who wrote them and when?

 

Some of those I'm specifically curious about are hymns like:
 

God is With Us - Μεθ Ημων ο Θεος - Snami Bog

The Angel Cried - Ο Αγγελος Εβοα

The Life in the Tomb - Η Ζωη Εν Ταφω (first stasis of Holy Friday Lamentations)

O Lord, Save Thy People - Σωσον Κυριε τον Λαον Σου - Spasi, Gospodi, Iyudi Tvoya

Behold, the Bridegroom - Ιδου, Ο Νυμφιος

I Behold Thy Bridal Chamber - Ο Νυμφωνα Σου Βλεπω

Today is Hung - Σημερον, Κρεμαται

They have stripped me of my garments - Εξεδυσαν με, τα ιματια μου

S'nami Bog: This is a compilation of OT verses which speak of the Incarnation.
