HYMNS OF THE PROPER - Hymns that change depending on the day of the week or day of the year, i. e., troparia, kontakia, hypakoe, stichera, gradual antiphons, kathisma hymns, kanons, exapostilaria, prokeimena, and others. In the practice of the Russian Church, Hymns of the Proper are for the most part performed "according to the Tones," i. e., using the melodies from one of the liturgical chants: znamenny, Kievan, Greek, Bulgarian or "Common."
