18th cent. transcriptions of byz. chant into line notation!

Article: http://www.conservatory.ru/files/OM_08_Vovk_full.pdf

The transcriptions were done in Russia in 17th-18th centuries. The language of the chants was not changed, they were left in Greek and simply put to line notation. I think this might be interesting to researchers and perhaps some interesting results could be drawn from studying these transcriptions.

The article also mentions that Kallistrat, one of the transcribers, tried to transcribe with as much detail as he could, thoroughly writing out melismatic parts of the chants. Example on pg. 59, Δύναμις ἅγιος.

The article provides a few scans of the line notations.
