Truly a brilliant prayerbook and hymnal that adds valuable content, hymns and prayers to the matins, typica, vespers, and midnight services of the Great Horologion prayerbook by Holy Transfiguration Monastery.
They say a must have is also the Menaion, which supposedly adds additional prayers and content as well. I am new to Orthodoxy but as far as i am aware, the complete basic Orthodox yearly prayerbook collection includes the previously beforementioned books and the Triodion set and Pentecostarion books as well. This is wonderfully complete.
However the larger format 13 inches long is awkward to use on a typical reader's lectern. See all reviews. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations. Back to top. Get to Know Us.

Middle Eastern music. Complex poems are written with syllabic patterns matching the meter of a familiar hymn written prior. This hymn has served as the metrical basis for many other Kontakia. In the current tradition the kontakion exists as well as a model to recite many other kontakia prosomoia which was as well translated into Old Church Slavonic.
In the particular genre kontakion this model is still regarded as an idiomelon due to the complexity of the poetic form. Usually the arrangement of the syllables with their metric accentuation are composed as a well-known hymn tune or sticheron avtomelon within the melos of a certain echos.
These melodic stichera are called automela , because they can easily adapted to other texts, even if the number of syllables of verse varies—the so-called "prosomoia. A hymn may more or less imitate an automelon melodically and metrically—depending, if the text has exactly the same number of syllables with the same accents as those of verses in the corresponding automelon.
The printed book Octoechos with the Sunday cycles is often without any musical notation and the determination of a hymn's melody is indicated by the echos or glas according to the section within the book and its avtomelon, a melodic model defined by the melos of its mode. Since this book collects the repertoire of melodies sung every week, educated chanters knew all these melodies by heart, and they learnt how to adapt the accentuation patterns to the printed texts of the hymns while singing out of other text books like the menaion.
It already existed during the 6th century in the Patriarchate of Antiochia , before it became a main genre of the centers of an Octoechos hymn reform in the monasteries of Saint Catherine on Mount Sinai and Mar Saba in Palestine , where St. John Damascene c. The earliest papyrus sources of the Tropologion can be dated to the 6th century: .
Choral singing saw its most brilliant development in the temple of Holy Wisdom in Constantinople during the reign of Emperor Justinian the Great. National Greek musical harmonies, or modes — the Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, and Mixolydian modes — were adapted to the needs of Christian hymnography.
Then John of Damascus started a new, third period in the history of Church singing. He introduced what is known as the osmoglasie — a system of singing in eight tones, or melodies —, and compiled a liturgical singing book bearing the title "Ochtoechos," which literally signifies "the book of the eight tones.
The earliest version of a Tropologion dedicated to the repertoire of Octoechos was created by Severus of Antioch , Paul of Edessa and John Psaltes between and The earliest state of an octoechos collection of the Sunday canons is Ms. Until the 14th century the book Octoechos, as far as it belonged to the Sticherarion , was ordered according to hymn genre of the repertoire.
They became a well structured book for the daily use of chanters like the later book Anastasimatarion or in Slavonic Voskresnik. The Octoechos also included other stichera dedicated to particular saints according to the provenance of a certain monastery, which also allows conclusions concerning place, where the chant book was used.
The Sticherarion did not only include the book Octoechos , but also the books Menaion , Triodion and Pentecostarion. Certain stichera of the other books, stichera prosomoia which rather belonged to an oral tradition, because they were later composed by using the avtomela written in the book Parakletike.
They were made over idiomela of the menaion and notated with the new verses, while most of the prosomoia relied entirely on an oral tradition. Although these prosomoia were part of the Pentecostarion, this cycle was often written within the Octoechos section. Nevertheless, a temporal eight-week-order was always the essential part of the Octoechos, at least as a liturgical concept.
The temporal organisation of the mobile feast cycle and its lessons was result of the Studites reform since Theodore the Studites, their books were already translated by Slavic monks during the 9th century. The same cycle started in the triodion with the Lenten period until Easter, [note 6] with the Lenten Friday preceding the subsequent Palm Sunday.
During this period, the Octoechos is not sung on weekdays and it is furthermore not sung on Sundays from Palm Sunday through the Sunday of All Saints. After Pentecost, the singing of the Great Octoechos on weekdays continued until Saturday of Meatfare Week, on Sundays there was another cycle organised by the eleven heothina with their exaposteilaria and their theotokia.
In the daily practice the prosomeia of the Octoechos are combined with idiomela from the other books: On the fixed cycle, i. The texts from these volumes displace some of those from the Octoechos. The less hymns are sung from the Octoechos the more have to be sung from the other books.
On major feast days, hymns from the Menaion entirely displace those from the Octoechos except on Sundays, when only a few Great Feasts of the Lord eclipse the Octoechos. Note that the Octoechos contains sufficient texts, so that none of these other books needs to be used—a holdover from before the invention of printing and the completion and wide distribution of the rather large volume Menaion—, but portions of the Octoechos e. Even before a direct exchange between Slavic monks and monks of the Stoudios Monastery, papyrus fragments offer evidence of earlier translations of Greek hymns.
The early fragments show that hymns and their melodies developed independently in an early phase until the 9th century. Cyril and Methodius and their followers within the Ohrid -School were famous for the translation of Greek hymnody between and , but it is also a period of a reformative synthesis of liturgical forms, the creation of new hymnographical genres and their organisation in annual cycles. Though the name of the book "Oktoich" derived from the Greek name Octoechos Old Slavonic "Osmoglasnik," because "glas" is the Slavonic term for echos , the Slavic book did rather correspond to the unnotated Tropologion, and often it included the hymns of the Irmolog as well.
Concerning the earlier translations of the hymns and later translations in Russia, we can observe two different approaches to translation, one which favours the musical and metrical structure and another which favours the literal translation of the hymns.
The school represented by Kliment of Ohrid , Naum , or Constantine of Preslav endeavoured to match the Greek text in the number of syllables in the hymns and to preserve the verse structure indicated by the corresponding neumes, but the resulting meaning of the hymns could change so considerably that, in certain cases, the only aspect the original and the translation had in common was the prescribed music, i.
On the other hand, the later translations during the missions in Russia had their emphasis on a literal translation of the texts, but this resulted in altering the metrical structure given by the avtomela and the heirmoi so much that the music had to be recomposed. Another difference between the two Slavic receptions was the tonal system. Since the Southern Slavic reception did not change the system the prosomoia, it corresponded to the Hagiopolitan Octoechos.
Glas "voice" 1—4 are the authentic modes or kyrioi echoi , and the remaining 5—8 are the plagal modes or plagioi echoi , the latter term coming from the Medieval Greek plagios , "oblique" from plagos , "side". Unlike the Western octoechos, glas 5—8 the plagioi echoi used the same octave species like glas 1—4, but their final notes were a fifth lower on the bottom of the pentachord with respect to the finales of the kyrioi on the top of each pentachord, the melodic range composed in the plagioi was usually smaller.
There was an alternative tonal system based on the obihodniy zvukoryad which was used in the Northern Slavic reception in Novgorod. It was based on a hexaechos, since it used a tone system based on triphonia with three modes organised in fourth equivalence. Often the Parakletike was divided in two volumes as Pettoglasniks.
Today heirmological melodies used primarily for canons have their own octoechos mele and their tempo, which employ a slightly modified scale for each tone;  in canons, each troparion in an ode uses the meter and melody of the ode's irmos analogous to prosomoia for sticheraric modes of a tone and, therefore, even when a canon's irmos is never sung, its irmos is nonetheless specified so as to indicate the melody.
Only seven copies of this first publication are known to remain and the only complete one is in the collection of the Russian National Library. In the Zograf Monastery published a set of Slavonic chant books whose first volume is the Voskresnik with the repertoire of the simple Osmoglasnik.
The first print edition Oktoikh notnago peniya, sirech' Osmoglasnik was published with Kievan staff notation in It included hymns in Znamenny Chant as well as the melodic models avtomela for different types of hymns for each Glas. Northern Slavs in modern times often do not use the eight-tone music system—although they always do use the book Octoechos —rather singing all hymns in the same scale but with different melodies for each tone for each of several types of classifications of hymns.
Although the Georgian Iadgari is not the oldest manuscript among the complete tropologia which could be preserved until the present day, the Iadgari offers the most complete insight into the development of hymnography and the cathedral rite of Jerusalem. They contain stichera, kontakia all kinds of troparia and canons without being necessarily dependent on the tradition of Byzantine chant and later developments of the Stoudios Monastery since the 9th century.
This section describes Oriental and Caucasian hymnals as they have been used by Armenians until the genocide by the end of the Ottoman Empire,  and as they are still used among Orthodox Christians in Syria, Persia, Armenia and Georgia. The Tropologion developed also in Syria and was called in Syriac Tropligin.
A Syriac translation of the "Octoechos of Antioch", tropologion created by Severus of Antioch, Paul of Edessa and John Psaltes early sixth century , was copied in , but still during the 9th century Tropligins were organised in a similar way like the Georgian Iadgari. The Syriac Orthodox Church today still makes use of a system of eight modes usually classified as makam.
Oktōēchos is the eight-mode system used for the composition of religious chant in Byzantine, Syriac, Armenian, Georgian, Latin and Slavic churches since the. The Octoechos is a liturgical book containing a repertoire of hymns ordered in eight parts according to eight echoi (tones or modes). The Octoechos is a liturgical book containing a repertoire of hymns ordered in eight parts according to eight echoi. Originally created in the Monastery of Stoudios during the 9th century as a hymnal complete with musical notation, it is still.
