Troparion for the Dormition

Since I was traveling on the feast, this is a few hours late - but this great feast was once a "Double of the First Class with a Common Octave," so I think we can keep rejoicing. This video gives you a sense of the variety of chants and styles that developed in the Orthodox Churches from Greek to Arabic, Church Slavonic and English.
