The Hymns of Contrition may also be called the Penitential Hymns and known by the standard Latinisation from the Greek as Katanyktikoi Hymnoi. The term refers to a wide set of pieces of hymnography used throughout the period of the Triodion, most especially in the stichera of Lenten Vespers (most often referenced in Sunday night Vespers).
