Our local OCA church and Ruthenian church both sing the Creed and Our Father. The only difference between the two is that the OCA singing is handled by the choir, and the Ruthenians all sing together with the cantor. I prefer congregational singing with everyone participating, but can see the sense of reciting the Creed and Our Father to aid participation when singing/chanting isn't possible in a particular situation.

And a fine job we did!
