The New Curriculum

Vol 5. The Khironomia Signs

Exercises to master the Byzantine ornamentations'
interpretations and signs reading according
to the research of Simon Karas.

The Khironomia signs are the signs of the hand. These signs represent the vocal ornamentations to make while chanting.

These signs are taught by the curriculum according to the research of Simon Karas.

The curriculum starts the presentation of each sign from one of its usages in the Antiochian Byzantine tradition, and then it generalizes its interpretation on all similar forms.

The learning of the interpretation of these signs is done through phrases' exercises that start from the simpler forms to the complex interacting forms and paragraphs.
