    My comment on your father’s post was marked as spam, but in it I noted that I set Kontakion 22 for Good Friday to metric rhyme to the tune EWING (“Jerusalem the Golden”) here: https://pastoralkorn.blogspot.com/2016/03/hymn-oh-pilate-fixed-three-crosses.html

    St. Romanos is brilliant. I have two copies of volume I: On the Person of Christ, translated and annotated by Marjorie Carpenter.
