If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

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

neumes? where's the "p"?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

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.
