Patriarchal commision on ecclesiastical music (1881) in its book "Elementary theory of our ecclesiastical music" states that they measured byzantine musical intervals because sacred singers were being familiar to european intervals.
I propose sacred singers to sing by patriarchal commision intervals. Are published at
www.analogion.net and at

In greek forum at http://www.analogion.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1339 I have in greek, my knowledge about problem of tempered intervals of byzantine music. On question: "in how many parts, scale (octave) must be devided?" my answer is 1200, that is cent of one twelveth of octave. It's internationally accepted scientific unit for musical intervals. I explain reason for confusion on other units (tmhmata, moria, etc) is round off error. I avoid more details here because see english speaking sacred singers follow their greek colleques on theoretical matters.
