This tool allows you to learn, write, play and export Byzantine Music. It shows you the basic byzantine symbols, teaches you about byzantine modes and compares the byzantine score with the european.
Byzantine music basically uses a “relative to previous” input method, in which you start from a known base and you go up or down, depending on the next symbol. There are 3 modes (the enharmonic, which is like the Major european scale, the diatonic and the chromatic).
By no means this is a complete representation of the Byzantine Music! You should listen to your teacher to fully understand all the elements described.
At this release, this tool includes:
- Straight moving symbols.
- Basic timing symbols
- Basic modes and “pthores” symbols
- Basic decoration symbols
The isokratis can be used to keep the isokratima (ison, ίσον) for home or school practice by the student, teacher and chanter of the Psaltiki Art (Byzantine Music).

The Orthodox Church is the Church founded by Jesus Christ and described throughout the New Testament. All other Christian Churches and sects can be traced back historically to it. The word Orthodox literally means "straight teaching" or "straight worship," being derived from two Greek words: orthos, "straight," and doxa, "teaching" or "worship." As the encroachments of false teaching and division multiplied in early Christian times, threatening to obscure the identity and purity of the Church, the term "Orthodox" quite logically came to be applied to it. The Orthodox Church carefully guards the truth against all error and schism, both to protect its flock and to glorify Christ, whose Body the Church is. An astonishing number of religious groups today claim to be the successors of the early Church. A "yardstick for truth" is needed by which to compare what the Church originally believed and practiced with what these groups proclaim. Certainly we all have the God-given right to believe whatever we desire and to participate in whatever religious association we choose. But it is also just good sense to be acquainted with the options before we make our final choices. It is our hope this material will help introduce readers to the Christianity espoused by the Apostles of Jesus Christ and instituted by them. This is the yardstick for truth by which our choices in regard to Christianity need to be evaluated.
