The paper outlines a method of reconstructing chants in Byzantine notation from late-18th to early19th centuries. The method is based on the comparison of pieces recorded both in Middle Byzantine and Chrysanthine notations. It consists in selecting a group of pieces with a high grade of similarity (same mode, same style, same composer etc.); segmenting every piece in syntactical units; creating an Old notation-New notation “dictionary” of formulas; determining rules of transcription for non-formulaic units; and checking the validity of the results in groups formed by gradually enlarging the initial group. This method is applied in the paper for the particular case of 24 stichera from the anastasimatarion of Petros Lampadarios Peloponnisios. The rules of transcription are verified by transcribing a few Romanian stichera in Middle-Byzantine notation and by comparing them with similar stichera in Chrysanthine notation.
