What hymns would you chant in the Glorification service of an Archangel?
Like for a Martyr, Marenouonh, Khen oushot, Etc
But for an Archangel, what?
For Michael, there are two hymns: Fa nitenh enhat and Ti-estoli emepnevmatikon that have tunes recorded.
For Gabriel, there is a special hymn Pihishennofi that has no tune I can find.
For Raphael, there is special hymn Genea Niven (same words as the doxology) that I cannot find a tune for.
For all of these as well as the other 4 Archangels, you can follow a normal tamgeed with the following additions:
-The hiten following Ekesmarouot
-The Morning Doxology section for the Heavenly after Entho Ethmav
-The verse in Rashi Ne (Rashi nak)
-If the tamgeed is done during Vespers, the psalm trailer (Tawaf) Ps. 33:7 may be said (“The angel of the Lord encamps roundabout...”/Epangelos emepchois hikoti emepkoti...) following the chanted psalm
Would it be wrong to use a paralex tune (like Alithos ghar from apekran) to fit on the words of Genea-niven?
In a case where there is no tune recorded for a hymn, is it okay (permissible) to utilize another tune?
If so, which tunes?
imo, if you dont know the tune you shouldn’t try to fit a tune onto it. The hymns are inspired by the Spirit so it is not our place to rakeb a new tune onto it.
It’s okay, turns out I got the correct tune for it.
