  Article:   ANTON PANN’S HEIRMOLOGHION. ARGUMENTS FOR IDENTIFYING THE SOURCE.

Authors:  DANIEL MOCANU.
 
       
         
  Abstract:   The mission of our work is to identify the source that Anton Pann used in order to compose the Irmologhiu sau Catavasier [Heirmologhion] (1846). Our challenge will be to carry on a comparative musical analysis between Heirmos I of the Canon at the Feast of Pentecost and similar fragments (Petros Vyzantios, Hourmouzios Hartofylax Edition, 1825, and Ioannis Vyzantios Protopsaltis, 1839). Previously, we will outline the place the Heirmologhion occupies in the Romanian composer’s creation. The comparative analysis of the three musical versions leads us to the conclusion that the source of Anton Pann’s Irmologhion, not mentioned in the preface of the work, is Petros Vyzantios’ syntomon Irmologhion, the Edition that was edited and transcribed by Hourmouzios Hartofylax in 1825, as proven by multiple similarities at the level of configurative modal line, of melodic-cadential formulas and of transient inflexions from other tones.
