Byzantine Music Book to be Donated to HCHC
On Thursday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m., the Axion Estin Foundation will donate an English-language translation of the "Great Theory of Music" by Chrysanthos of Madytos to Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. The work, which was initially published in Greek in 1832, is the first systematic exposition of the theoretical framework of the Psaltic Art and the New Method of Analytical Notation.
The event will take place in the Library Reading Room and will include a master class in lenten hymnology by distinguished cantor Eleftherios Eleftheriadis, Protopsaltis of St. Nicholas Shrine Church of Flushing, New York. A reception will follow.
