Introduction to the New Method of Byzantine Chant Notation
An English translation of Chourmouzios' revision of Chrysanthos' Eisagoge
Chrysanthos of Madytos
This English translation of Chourmouzios Chartophylax's revision of Chrysanthos'
Introduction to the New Method of Greek chant notation has been made with the
intention of providing students, scholars and musicians access to an easily digestible and
widely accessible explanation of the rudimentary signs and theory of the chant notation
used in the Greek and other Orthodox Churches. Written by two of the Three Teachers
of the New Method, established in 1814, the Eisagoge is authoritative. Notes identify
and underline the theoretical adjustments made by the 1888 Constantinople Music
Committee. Despite the lack of great detail, this short work offers a thorough grounding
for reference and comparison to subsequent publications.
