Carpatho-Rusyn Prostopinije: Samohlasen Yesterday And Today
The samohlasen tone, hlas V, from two sources.
The upper staff presents the version found in a Carptho-Rusyn
manuscript Irmologion written around 1700.
The lower gives the tone as sung nowadays. It was supplied to the
author by the late Michael P. Hilko (+ 1974), a well-known cantor,
choir director, and composer.
The tone consists of three repeating phrases (marked A, B, and C), a
special concluding phrase (marked x), and the melody for the psalm
verses (marked Ps).
The final note of Ps in the earlier version is probably a scribal
mistake; it should be G rather than A, in agreement with Hilko's
