    This is a slightly experimental setting of this service. The service is given in full in the abbreviated form customarily used, but with the entire Canon set for singing. Melodies and harmonies are taken from the standard nineteenth century Russian editions, but modified to give the melody in the soprano line and to remove parallel fifths and octaves.
