In the Greek tragedy, a song of the chorus, continued without the interruption of dialogue or anapæstics.
a choral ode, consisting of strophes and antistrophes (stanzas and answering stanzas in which the chorus sings and dances a strophic pair in identical meter and steps, perhaps with the antistrophe reversing the movement of the strophe)
a song sung during the play, between episodes of action
a stationary song, sung after the chorus has taken up its station in the orchestra
lyric ode sung (with accompanying dance) by chorus, usually with no actors present; stasima serve to articulate the different epeisodia of the play
