Abstract. The aim of the study. The article is devoted to the research of the Old Kyiv noble collections of the Orthodox Church. Decoding the notebook of this period remains a rather complicated and unresolved problem. There are certain gaps in the study of liturgical notables of the period of Kievan Rus not allowing them to be translated into contemporary notation. The objectives of this study were to analyse and explore the collected collections of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and to develop ways that would facilitate the deciphering of Old Man’s written manuscripts.
The research methodology is based on a combination of different research methods: analytical method helped to analyse and explore the collected collections of the period of Kievan Rus; statistical and chronological methods helped to define the time and quantitative characteristics; the comparative method helped to reveal the general and specific features of old-fashioned liturgical manuscripts; the hypothetical-deductive method allowed analysing various hypotheses and outlining ways that will help to decipher the old-time written manuscripts.
Conclusions. The main material for studying the liturgical singing from the XIth to the XIVth century is the published manuscripts, the total number of which does not exceed four dozen, which allow concluding that the basic principles of ancient Kievan singing were laid during that period. However, the deciphering of the early forms of Kiev inaccurate writing today represents an unresolved problem to be solved by active cooperation with scientists from Western European countries, using the latest computer technologies and the complete cataloguing of ancient musical manuscripts.
