    A complete dictionary of musical terms containing musical diagrams as well as the names of the phonograms and alterations in five different languages.The science of Byzantine Musicology is more than a century old, with the majority of its studies being written in Greek and English. This Glossary attempts for the first time the matching of the two language codes in terms of terminology, but also of importance.
    Edited by musicologist and linguist Gerasimos-Sophocles Papadopoulos, the Glossary is the essence of the translation process of Professor Christian Troelsgard's book "Byzantine Neumes", which has also been published by Fagottobooks. The definitions quoted have been taken mainly from this book, with some additions by the curator himself, where this was deemed necessary.
    Although at the first level the bilingual list of terms seems to be just a useful tool for the researchers of Byzantine Musicology, in fact within the various definitions are concentrated a multitude of musicological, historical, morphological, philological and other information, which make the Glossary easy to use. for those who wish to immerse themselves in the secrets of the old tradition of Byzantine Chant.
