So the beginning of this piece has a very unique melody for "Blood and Fire" (Αἷμα καὶ πῦρ) that ends on Pa. I wanted to go with something similar, but I couldn't find any Pl. 4th Cadences on Pa that fit 101.
However, I did find one on page 285 in the formulas for 4th Mode Sticheraric (see 2nd attached picture). It's a very basic melody (may not even be ornate enough to match the Greek, but I didn't think it wise to invent my own formula), so I wanted to ask if this formula was acceptable to start this composition on? I like how it goes to Ga on "Blood" and it fits "fire" decently if one takes out the gorgon. Another possibility of altering it would be to replace the melody in the 101 formula with the melody on πῦρ from the original score. Is this acceptable?
Any thoughts? Is it unacceptable to pull a formula from another mode, even one so basic? Does this formula fit well enough for the piece, or is there a better solution?
