In looking for a version to print out for the children (I like to talk with them a little before services like this so they have some understanding of what they are hearing) I noted there are quite a few versions available online. Here are three:
- From St. Jonah Orthodox Church in Spring, TX - The most commonly referenced online.
- St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in McKinney, TX - This is another popular source.
- Antiochian Archdiocese - A version notable in that it also has the Akathist broken up so it can be read in pieces over the entire Nativity Fast.
Here is a sample from a recording made by St. Ignatius Orthodox Church in Madison, WI (available on liturgica.com).
