Lycourgos Angelopoulos and the Byzantine Choir of Greece
Divna and the Melodi Choir

The Glory of Byzantium Lycourgos Angelopoulos and the Byzantine Choir of Greece Divna and the Melodi Choir
  • Description
  • Reviews

This album is a tribute to the splendors of Byzantine music, source of the oldest Christian traditions. This is one of the greatest recordings of Byzantine music that exists in the world; a true and internationally recognized masterpiece. This CD has been conceived as a subtle dialogue between two outstanding artists representative of this renowned repertoire: a legend and an up-and-comer.

The legend is Lycourgos Angelopoulos, head of the Byzantine Chorus of Greece. He is the world’s foremost specialist of Byzantine music. During its 28 years of activity, the Chorus has participated in more than a thousand concerts, liturgies and other shows – including several nights of vigil at the Mount Sinai Monastery. The Chorus performs in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States.

The new star is Divna Ljubojevic—a Serbian cantor with the Melodi Choir. With two albums, this Serbian singer has earned a reputation as an exceptional interpreter of the Orthodox repertoire. Her voice, flawless and crystal-like, moves instantaneously. The performance then, alternates between traditional "Greek" style Byzantine chant and “Russian” style Serbian chant.
