The hierarchy inherent to church celebrations, in the ancient Russian worship manifested itself in its separate components, and thus formed an integral holiday order. This side of the ancient perception of the service received its organic embodiment and development in the 18th — ﬁ rst half of the 19th century typikon of Vygo-Leksinsky coastdwellers’ coenoby. In a number of features that deﬁ ne the degree of solemnity of a service, there was included the stylistics of liturgical chants, the types of bell-ringing, the presence or absence of certain sections of worship (the canon during the prayer service before the hours and lite), the degree of participation in the service of all the brotherhood, the use of church ornaments (threaded cloths, candles before icons). As a result, Vygo system of holidays hierarchy proved to be more detailed and ﬂ exible than the similar system ﬁ xed in printed Jerusalem typikon: if Vygo system includes up to 15 diﬀ erent degrees, pre-reform printed typikons include 6 degrees. While maintaining the overall approach that is embedded still in the early monuments of Vygo typikon, in its later editions a further development of the system and holidays complexity took place. The basis for the creation of its own typikon were monastic plain chant books of the 17th century (a special attention is paid to the connection with Solovki Monastery Plain Chant Book) and the full range of early printed service books. However, a signiﬁ cant step forward was their own liturgical activity. Thus, Vygo system instructions on bell-ringing and prayer services, as well as chant instructions (oriented to the speciﬁ c singing tradition that is ﬁ xed in the cycle of Coast-Dwellers’ Old-Believers’ chant books), began to perform quite speciﬁ c function in forming the degree of service festivity and they were directly related to other typikon peculiarities of Divine services
