Salutations to the Theotokos
Time & Location
About The Event
The Akathist Hymn and Small Compline are two services which are sung on the first five Fridays during Great Lent. The Small Compline, and the canon, is sung on each of the five Fridays. This is also true of the prayers beginning with "Holy God" and continuing to the end of the service with the exception that the Holy Gospel is read only on the First Friday.
On each of the first four Fridays the canon is sung. At the same time, one of the four stases is also chanted by the Priest on each successive Friday.
