According to Wikipedia, the tunes which we call 'Shamy' are of Syrian origin and the tunes we call 'Roumy' are of Byzantine origin (which makes sense because [coptic]romy[/coptic] is Coptic for 'Rome') - I was just wondering which hymns are 'shamy' and 'roumy'?
I know that [coptic]au[inon[/coptic] and [coptic]pek`;ronoc[/coptic] are both 'Shamy', which kind of disappointed me because I always thought they were Ancient Egyptian burial tunes. But are there any other 'shamy' tunes? And which hymns are 'roumy'?
It would also be interesting to know where the rest of them came from - does anybody know of any resources about the musical origin of our hymns?
Thanks a lot and God Bless
