There are Great Znamenny Chant settings of Dostoino yest' in all 8
Tones dating back to the 16th century in Russia. The common Old Rite
practice is to use these for usual Sundays, while the Put' chant
melody (not in any given Tone) is used for weekday Liturgies. For
feasts we have the Demestvenny Chant version (also not in any
particular Tone), or we can sing one of the settings from the medieval
monastic communities that had their own unique melodies (such as the
Solovetsky monastery and the St. Cyril of While Lake monastery); these
melodies are found in the pre-Nikonian Obikhod as circulated in
- All days have antiphons in the Studite Typikon; the Psalms & the Beatitudes came in w/thye Sabbaitic Typikon.
The special ones for this feast are:
1. Ps. 91:1 ff. w/Through the prayers....
2. Ps. 92:1 ff. w/Son of God, carried in the arms...
3. Ps. 94:1 ff. w/tropar of the Feast
Entrance verse as in current Typikon
