The study has stated that the collection is a possessory convolute of six independent manuscripts, compiled not earlier than the first half of the XX century. Its structure is based on the book of songs Obikhod of the Pomorian Old Believers editorship, the transformation of which was carried out by expanding the repertoire by introducing chants traditionally belonging to another singing book - Oktoikh. It is concluded that the compiler of the convolute formed it purposefully, striving to create a book of songs of universal content.
