The liturgical chant in the byzantine empire evolved in the first millenium into a system of eight modes. This system was imported to Kievan Rus and became a basis of the later russian, galician and carpathian chant. A later byzantine music was imported slowly to Galiciaand to Carpathian region through Moldova and Valahia in the 14th-17th centuries and enriched the ecclesiastical singing with the so called bulgarian chant. Both layers, kievan and bulgarian, were transmitted in the carpathian region mostly in an oral way and they have undergone many changes, making their byzantine origin hardly recognizable.
