Notes: This Orthodox chant functions as a call to prayer, particularly in the context of evening services. Traditionally one group sings the first half and another group the second half. Sing in parts without accompaniment, leading with a vocal ensemble. Do not interpret the rhythm rigidly; a natural speech rhythm will help in setting the pace.
