Hierarchical Trisagion in Byzantium


Παλαιό Μέλος
I attach several pages on the hierarchical Trisagion setting* as analysed in Dimitri Conomos' book on Byzantine Trisagia and Cheroubika. Some interesting features are that while the piece overall is in the Second Mode, the priests' parts use the martyria of the Plagal Second Mode and a florid setting of Doxa Patri chanted solo by domestikos is preceded by the martyria of Plagal Fourth.

* I think I have heard the corresponding recording by Capella Romana (using Ioannis Arvanitis' transcription?).
