An addition:  "mR^ityave svAhA mR^ityave svAhA ..": 10-58-1 taittirIya AraNyaka
 Minor observation about double occurrence of the verse: 
"ye te sahasramayutaM...sarvAnava yajAmahe": 10-57-1 of taittirIya AraNyaka (OR 3-10-8-2 of taittirIya BrAhmaNa)
 Interesting note(s): -- 10-56-1, 10-57-1 and 10-58-1 of taittirIya AraNyaka are all recited towards the end of the Rudram, but not in sequential order like in the Veda!
-- 10-74-1 and 10-75-1 of taittirIya AraNyaka are both recited at the very end, but their order is interchanged in the standard Rudram chanting from their original order in the Veda! That is, recitation order in Rudram is: taittirIya AraNyaka 10-75-1, then 10-74-1 !
