Sticheron Examples of different liturgical contexts where stichera are commonly used include:
Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden And 4 stichera, in Tone I: Spec. Mel.: Joy of the ranks of heaven
Neobyzantine Octoechos The old sticheraric melos is the one found in the old "Anastasimatarion" [the cycle of 11 "stichera heothina" in the "Anastasimatarion" of Panagiotes the New Chrysaphes], in the old "Sticheraria", and in the "Doxastikarion" of Iakovos. Hence, the "doxastika", the "stichera", the "anastasima" [elaborate resurrection hymns], the "ainoi" [Laudate-psalms], the "prosomoia" and "idiomela", and the "stichera heothina" [see Matins Gospel] are made of the sticheraric melos.
Aposticha The Greek term literally means "[hymns] on the verses." The aposticha belong to a family of hymns, known as stichera, which are normally tied to psalm verses in the Daily Office. Unlike other stichera, which normally follow their psalm verses, the aposticha are unique in that they precede their psalm verses.
Neobyzantine Octoechos The new sticheraric melos is the one preserved in the "Anastasimatarion" of Petros Peloponnesios. Hence, the "doxastika", the "stichera", the "anastasima", the "exaposteilaria", the "ainoi", the "prosomoia" and "idiomela", the "stichera heothina", the "kathismata" and "antiphona", and the "eisodika" are made of this melos.
Christopher of Mytilene Christopher composed also four calendars in four different metres (hexameter, dodecasyllables, stichera, and canones), commemorating all the saints and feasts of the Orthodox Christian liturgical year.
Holy Week A new liturgical day beginning at sunset, the first service of each day is vespers at which stichera are chanted elaborating the theme of the new day.
Idiomelon It was a heterogenous collection of hymns, mainly of unique compositions (stichera idiomela) which could be identified by their own idiomatic melodies. The later Slavonic translators of the Ohrid school (863-893) called the idiomela "samoglasniy". There are other stichera called "prosomoia" (Sl. "podobniy") which do not have their own melodies, but they used a limited number of well-known melodies—the so-called "avtomela" (Sl. "samopodobniy").
Christian burial After the canon, the choir chants stichera that were composed by St. John Damascene. According to tradition, Saint John composed these hymns to help one of the brethren in his monastery as he grieved for a family member. There are eight stichera, each composed in one of the tones of the Octoechos. These hymns are also chanted on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings throughout the year, since Saturday is a day set aside for general commemoration of the departed.
Doxastikon There are other instances when a hymn is found between "Glory..." and "Both now..." (i.e., Apolytikion, the Canon); however, these hymns are troparia rather than stichera, and so are not referred to as doxasticha.
