Coin The Irmologion as the Spiritual Heritage of Ukraine and Belarus 20 грн., market price 19.05.2021
Україна - Білорусь. Духовна спадщина - Ірмологіон
This coin celebrates irmologions – collections of various types of liturgical chants written in sheet music. This ancient spiritual tradition was widespread in the late 16th century and later across all ethnic Ukrainian and Belarusian lands. The Irmologion, the first book written in sheet music, contained a collection of irmoi – melodic and rhythmic models for troparia of ode canons, which made it popular both in church and teaching practices. Words in irmos texts are threaded like coral beads onto a string, alternating like ornament motifs. Irmologions were written in monasteries, cathedrals and parish churches. Most extant irmologions are hand-written. In the early 18th century, printed irmologions written in sheet music started to appear.
