Tone 0 anyone??
« on: October 03, 2003, 05:11:25 PM »
Yesterday we celebrated the feast of Righetous Admiral Theodore, however, I noticed his Troparion is sung in tone 0 but I've never heard of this tone. Maybe someone can send me the music so I can try and learn Tone 0 tropars.


Righteous Admiral Theodore Ushakov of the Russian Naval Fleet
Russia, Alexev, Mordovia (19th Century)
Troparion in tone 0
You were an invincible supreme commander of the Russian realm,
Destroying and setting at nought the malice of the Moslems
And seeking neither worldly glory or riches, you served God and your neighbor.
Pray, O holy Theodore, that victory over the enemy be granted our army,
That our homeland may abide in unshakeable piety
And that the children of Russia may be saved.

Are you sure Tone 0 isn't an Onion Dome creation?

There is *no* Tone 0, Bobby. ::)  Someone just did a typo.  I tried singing the lyrics of the Troparion to the Righteous Admiral Theodore, and they fit very well with Tone 4.

If they made a typo, then they probably meant tone 9. What in the world is tone 9? This is madness!!!

I submit this a heresy promulgated by the new arrayists, that insist that it is proper to start with the zeroith element rather that the teachings of the original orators of our tonal sytem that began with the first (and proper) element.  Undue influence from the islamic hordes, led by the murdering Al-Gebra, is most likely to blame.

I apoligize for my islamic ancestors who no doubt facilitated in the introduction of tone "0" to the masses.  In case that is wrong, I also apologize for my onion dome ancestors, who, when wanted to be different from the greeks decided to create both a tone "0" & a tone "9".  I'd also like to point out the tone 0 & 9 is a secret only shared between decendents of onion domers.  :-D
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
