AΓNH ΠAPΘENE – Agni Parthene – Notation

The following notation of melody and chords has arisen from hearing and comparing different versions
of Aγν ή Παρθένε (Agnı́ Parthéne) on YouTube. Melodic decorations added by single interpreters
are not respected here, and the detection of the chords is mainly based on the help of
In the original notation of only the root of the chords is sung, and in Tune B the beginning root d continues
for two further bars. In addition, the root of the very first chord of each of the three tunes is already used there in the anacrusis.

Synchronizing triangles: It is often usual to start the chorus simultaneously with the last bar of
the verse melody. This is indicated by right triangles ◮ at the beginning of the corresponding bars.
Text: Notes beamed or embraced by a slur refer to the same syllable; a slash / separates the verses.
