The phrase '''Sessional Hymn''' can refer to a set of [[troparion|troparia]] (hymns) chanted after each kathisma from the Psalter at Matins which may be preceded by a little small [[ektenialitany]] (litany), depending on the [[typikon]] in use and a number of aspects of the day's propers. In [[Church Slavonic|Slavonic]] it is called a ''sedálen'' from ''sediti'', "to sit" (Cf. [[w:Latin language|Latin]] ''sedere'', "to sit").<ref>''The Festal Menaion'' (Tr. Mother Mary and Archimandrite [[Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia|Kallistos Ware]], Faber and Faber, London, 1984), p. 553.</ref> Hymns with the same name are also used after the third ode of the [[Canon (hymnography)|canon]].
