Lent 2014 – Day 12: To do or not to do?

Today I come to you with a question: What do you think of using Arabic scales (which are not similar to byzantine scales) in chanting the bible or epistle? Here is a recording by the late chanter Dimitri Koutia reading the bible to the Hijaz Kar Arabic scale.

Are there any rules to follow with this regard?
