Kontakion 

In Orthodox worship, a short hymn in honor of a saint or the departed. A Kontakion, "Give rest, O Christ, to your servant," is used in the Burial Office of the BCP as an anthem at the commendation. It is repeated as an antiphon at the commendation (p. 499). The Hymnal 1982 provides a musical setting of this Kontakion (Hymn 355).
