Abstract. The article considers the functional meanings ??of the scale formations of the medieval mode represented in the Gregorian chant. The functional content of the nomenclature of scale objects - diatessaron, diapente - is interpreted from the perspective of active structural units - the shortest intonation formations consisting of two adjacent tones in second interval with downward vector. The context of mnemonic process associated with the activity of the observer’s perceiving consciousness - memory and sensory evaluation of sound - contributes to the manifestation of the functional properties of scale "blocks".
