- * Optional

- The Roumi was written by Cantor Sarkis, who was also a hegumen who also wrote the Greek Psali Arip-salin in midnight Tasbeha. He is famous for writing Greek parts and hymns that have Coptic words in them. These 9 parts of the Roumi are famous for the way he wrote it. Every first letter of every of the 9 parts spells out "Sarkes Akee" when put in order.

- The Moaqab These parts are called the Moaqab for the fact that the last line of the part is the first in the next part.

- Are-tenthonti is chanted like the hymn Ti-galele-a in the Wednesday Theotokeia.

- This Kiahky Sherat is very famous for its original way to be chanted in. Which was its four different tune. The first is for the first four parts of the Sherat, the second is for the second four, the third is for the third four, and the fourth is for the fourth four. But also most of the sources, including HICS, record only the first four parts long on the four tunes in order. So it can be said that way to.
