      Worthwhile referencing in support of this is the footnote of
      Archimandrite Ephrem (of Thyateira and Great Britian) in the weekday
      Matins service for the Six Psalms; he writes that these psalms belong
      to the ~gerontica~ (cf. English, 'gerontology') , i.e., readings to be
      done by the senior-ranking cleric (which includes readers and psaltes)
      at the cleros. He also mentions that the Six Psalms should be read by
      one reader, not divided amongst several readers. Viz.:
