Byzantine Music School
Byzantine music is an ancient form of music that is mainly chanted in Church during Services. Concomitantly, it is the basis of Greek folklore music like Tsamikos, Kalamatianos, Syrtos etc. Byzantine is the closest to the melodies that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and most of the saints used to listen to. Its disciplined structure promotes the uplifting of our spirits, supports the focus on praying and helps in achieving inner peace. Therefore, it is recommended not only for musicians and chanters, but also for the faithful that need a blessed method to meditate and experience the presence of God in their hearts.
