Comment on the current quality and some propositions for an elaboration
This article, although very important, could be commented in a similar way as the article Acolouthia had been already commented on its talk page. It is obviously a Catholic Orthodox point of view with very problematic definitions which do not really help a reader, who looks for some basic informations about the Byzantine hymn book sticherarion. I corrected the most problematic definitions, but the article is still a stub and needs to be restructured entirely.
Here I offer some keywords, which might help courageous contributors:
the Studites reform (9th century) and the later book of the early sticherarion with Paleobyzantine Notation, the separation of the book Octoechos (12th century)
the Papadic reform and the revised editions of Middle Byzantine Sticheraria with Octoechos signatures (14th-18th century)
the Sticherarion kalophonikon and the stichera kalophonika and anagrammatismoi (14th-18th century)
the reform of the New Method, its definition of a sticheraric melos between Anastasimatarion (Sl. Voskresnik) and Anthologia tis leitourgias (Sl. Psaltiken Liturgija), and its chant books Doxastarion and Mathematarion (18th-21th century)
Not only liturgical, but also musicological competences are required. Nevertheless, please feel welcome. Platonykiss (talk) 23:07, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
