The Russian equivalent for Polychronion is Многолетие, whereas a deacon and a chorus after him proclaim:  Многая лета! [Many years! in Church Slavonic].

Many thanks for your answer and help.

As I cannot properly read and speak Russian language yet, would you please be kind enough to let me know the transcription in "Latin alphabet" of the Russian equivalent of Polychronion ?

Thanks for the "Many years" !

I remember reading in different books translated or written in French the expression " The Romanovs' Litanies ", exactly like there is a Litany of the Saints in the Roman Catholic Chruch, which is chanted by all attending the All Saints Day mass on 1st November, a day off in France. 2nd November is Day of the Dead, it is not off, thus most people rather go to church and to church yards and cemeteries on 1st November.
