The Hypakoe or Ypakoe (Greek: Υπακοή, from the verb υπακούω, "hearken" or "give ear", to "respond"; Slavonic: Ўпакои) is a troparion sung at Matins on Great Feasts and Sundays:

  1. On some Great Feasts it occurs after Ode Three of the Canon, and on Pascha it is also sung again at the Liturgy with the Paschal troparion and kontakion.
  2. On Sundays it comes after the Evlogitaria of the Resurrection and the Small Litany.
  3. The Sunday Hypakoe is also read at the Sunday Midnight Office, after the Canon to the Trinity.[1]

The first Hypakoe was composed by the Emperor Leo the Wise (who reigned in 886 and died in 912), in reference to the obedient hearing of the myrrh-bearing women.[2]
