Thibaut gives transcriptions of Bulgarian melodies accompanying the Liturgy of St. John Chrystostom. He also discusses some intervallic peculiarities (for instance, he notes that the intervals of the Second Mode sound differently when chanted solo by a trained singer or by a choir, and that that holds true both for Greeks and Bulgarians!).
