L.Asteris(2003, from mpa.gr)
The fast part in the beginning is by the First domestichos Stylianos Floikos. Asteris seems to be inconsistent (?) in the pitch of ZW and GA even in the same musical phrase.

S. Gugushvili: Let's take "Tin gar sin mitran" chanted by Stanitsas and another version by OEBX. Unfortunately I don't have EBX version, but law of photocopying suggests that they would do pretty much the same as OEBX. My opinion is that a choir will never be able to chant this piece like Stanitsas/soloist. The difference is especially evident in chronos, OEBX does what they (LA school) seem to call syneptygmenos and which it isn't according to the Patriarchal yphos, and in many mechanical and rigid analyseis that OEBX performs. The unexplicable speeding up/slowing down of OEBX is extremely weird.
