Byzantine Chant: A sequel to the monograph Byzantine Sacred Music containing a concise discussion of the Origin of Byzantine chant, its Modes, Tempo, Notation, Prologoi, Prosomoia, Style, and other features

   
By Constantine Cavarnos

“The term 'Byzantine Music' denotes the music that was used and developed in the Byzantine Empire, the Roman Empire of the Hellenic East. [...]Byzantine sacred music is used, firstly, as a means of worshipping God and venerating the saints, and secondly, as a means of self-perfecting, of opposing and eradicating man's lower, undesirable thoughts, feelings and dispositions, and of eliciting and cultivating the higher ones.”
