Dr. Romanos Karanos, Professor of Byzantine Music at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and Dr. Achilléas Chaldæákis, Professor of Byzantine Music and the Psaltic Art at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

From what I see, this book is more or less the same type of content as Georgios Konstantinou's Theoretikon.

I still find it strange that Georgios Konstantinou's book wasn't translated in English as of yet , but was translated in Romanian, my native language, over 10 years ago.

There is still GKM and the Partriarchal School's content that should be discussed, especially that concerning chronos.

John discusses this at some length in the book. He started intending to produce a translation of Konstantinou; he quickly realized that for an Anglophone audience, something different was needed, and he expanded the scope of the project considerably. A handful of spots that are Konstantinou's text remain, principally in the early lessons; John credits and cites Konstantinou, and clearly differentiates them from his own text.

If possible, would you please share the table of contents? In particular, I am wondering how extensive the non-theoretical material is. That is, the "historical development, style, repertoire, genres, and bibliography" that was mentioned.
