LYCOURGOS ANGELOPOULOS AND THE BYZANTINE CHOIR OF GREECE
Lycourgos Angelopoulos, head of the Byzantine Chorus of Greece, is considered to be an expert in Byzantine music, as he aims to preserve its authentic tradition through both an aesthetic and historically accurate musical process.
Divna Ljubojevic was born in Belgrade in 1970. She studied at the Mokranjac Musical School and graduated from the Novi Sad Musical Academy. She practiced religious singing with the choir of Vavedenje monastery, where she was trained by the sisters who held her to the unique style derived from Karlovatz singing, and faithfully cherished traditional Russian singing.
In 1991 she created the Melodi Choir, composed of 10 singers. The repertoire focuses on works belonging to Orthodox sacred music, from the oldest monadic or polyphonic Byzantine, Serbian, Bulgarian and Russian pieces, to contemporary works.
