Serbian Byzantine Choir Moisey Petrovich

…and this man of good judgment called from the Holy Mountain hieromonk Anatolios, a knowledgeable chanter. And founding a Greek school in Belgrade, he chose, time after time, juveniles with excellent voices, lectured by this chanter according to the Greek chant method, in an adequate amount; and thus he gladdened Church a lot…

Archimandrite John Raich (1726 – 1801)


The choir are dedicated to researching and presenting authentic orthodox, Serbian and Byzantine Christian church music style. Serbian Byzantine Choir Moisey Petrovich, from Belgrade, is the first choir of its kind in Serbia. Inclining towards the everlasting fountain of Athonite tradition, the choir who bear the name of the restorer of Serbian Byzantine psalmody together is reviving the work of the Belgrade chanting school. The repertoire of the choir contains compositions from Greek and southern Slavonic melographs from the Middle Ages until the present day, as well as melodies from unknown authors whose fountainhead is the oral tradition of the various local churches. Altogether the chanting opus is written in new analytic Byzantine notation.
