Is there an online outline of the Vespers Liturgy of Great and Holy Saturday in the Slavic tradition?

I used to have a copy of the Holy Week Service Book published by the GOA but gave it to a woman I know who couldn't afford one of her own and who is Antiochian.

Bob,

The service is on the Metropolitan Cantor Institute website (look on the home page under Music for Holy Week).

Yours in Christ,
Jeff Mierzejewski

Dear Bob,

You can find not only an outline, but the texts here:

Father David and Jeff:

Father bless!!

May God bless you both for your references to the texts. It's been more years than I want to count since I last attended the Vespers Liturgy of Holy Saturday.

The OCA priest in this area is a good friend of mine and I mentioned that I'd like to attend if he were serving this Liturgy. He said he didn't have a reader and I told him I'd read for him if I could find the texts. He said he'd get back to me and I thought I would try to get started in the meantime. The parish where we will be has a mostly very elderly composition so he has to sing almost everything himself.

Thank God for both of you for your kindness andthank you both.

BOB
