Does this let you hear pitches or just see the symbols?

The recordings are by Konstantinos Katsoulis, a student of the master psaltis Iakovos Nafpliotis.

Neumes (or, to use the Greek plural neumata) means signs or gestures; pneuma/pneumata, means, as you know, spirit(s).  :)

P.S.--just as a side note, I'm not sure what posessed me to write that Katsoulis was a student of Nafpliotis. He's not (although his chanting style is similar). I guess it was late.
