Long Intonations and Kalophonia: Traces of stylistic development in Late Byzantine Echemata

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

The paper shows that the melodic material in quasi-improvised intonation melodies (echemata) in the period from c. 1200 to 1400 develop from being drawn from the traditional genres - especially the pasltikon and asmatikon - to acquiring a more free and decidely 'kalophonic' character.
