This book is currently being used in the Archdiocesan Byzantine Music School and thus far has been very successful. The book contains a brief introduction to the history of Byzantine music, 107 exercises with analysis of the various characters, a page devoted to the theory of each mode, and a CD containing around 120 mp3's covering all of the material found in the book. The book is full color. It is very easy to read and follows the traditional methodology used in most Byzantine music books accepted by the conservatory of Athens. However, this book is unique because of its bilingual use (Greek and English). The text is written in the English language while all of the original Greek terms are preserved with an English transliteration for those not able to read Greek.
