The modes as implemented in my automation of the music

For my own sake, I must expose the modes as I have coded. I forget how to use my own program! Here's my picture from 2012.
In doing the first chapter of the prophet Joel, I wonder what the chromatic phrygian is.

Here they are as coded

Poetry
1 C4 D4#E4 F4#G4 A4 B4 C5 D5#E5 F5#
     default for psalms chromatic hypodorian
2 C4#D4#E4 F4#G4#A4 B4 C5#D5#E5 F5#
     Major
3 C4 D4#E4 F4#G4#A4 B4 C5 D5#E5 F5#
     Major-minor Mitchell for Pss 120-134 Lydian Minor 6th f# is flat if singing
4 C4 D4#E4 F4#G4 A4#B4 C5 D5#E5 F5#
     raised 4th <> prose 4 Hypodorian pronounced chromatic
5 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5
    Natural minor aolian
6 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4#A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5
    like prose 1
7 C4 D4 E4 F4#G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5#
    like prose 2

Prose
1 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4#A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5  SHV
     default for prose chromatic dorian
2 C4 D4 E4 F4#G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5#
     Hypodorian - diatonic minor
3 C4#D4#E4 F4#G4#A4 B4 C5#D5#E5 F5#
     Lydian
4 C4#D4 E4 F4#G4 A4#B4 C5#D5 E5 F5#
     chromatic phrygian with raised 4th
5 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5
     Natural minor aolian

Here is Joel chapter 1 in mode 4 (Prose of course since by definition Joel is part of the 21 books). I think the high C# could be flattened - what do you think? I have a feeling I did not like the A#-C interval when I coded the program data, but it works quite well in this chapter. The A# itself negates the idea of rest on the atnach. There is no real rest in these words.
