Ensemble "Sretenye"

Ensemble of the Medieval music Sretenye (Candlemas ) was founded in 1990 in Kharkov, and originally consisted of the three graduates of Kharkov institute of beaux arts, who were joined together by the love to the church Medieval music. This love was not caused by the exotic character of the Medieval music , but by the deeper accordance of Medieval vocal music with a spirit of prayer. Well-known Greek protopsalt L. Angelopoulos gave invaluable help to the ensemble "Sretenye". Not only he supplemented the repertoire of the choir with a number of very rare medieval times canticles, but also, what is the most important, he shared his knowledge of Byzantine singing characteristic features.
