The Byzantine chant is a tradition of ecclesiastical vocal music mainly sung in the Greek Orthodox church. The chants are based on pre-existing melodic formulas composed in different variations and combinations. This demanded from the composer great skills in order to be able to unite text and music. Through fine-drawn composition techniques the words were set to music seeking unity and the present thesis is a study of the craftmanship behind it. It is a study of the relationship between word and music in Katabasiai from the Christmas Kanon with text written by St Kosmas the melodist and music composed by Petros Peloponnesios. It contains the following: 1) Basic theoretical and historical knowledge about the Byzantine chant, 2) a transcription of the Katabasiai from the Christmas Kanon, transcribed from the Chrysanthine notation into the Western staff nota-tion, 3) a polyprismatic analysis table depicting a structural, metrical, textural and music-syntactical analysis followed by musicological comments.
