WORKSHOP BYZANTINE MUSIC FOR TO-SPIRITUALITY
BYZANTINE MUSIC WORKSHOP FOR TO-SPIRITUALITY open to all, it answers this question with singing: where is the oral transmission of sacred music in Europe, in Italy?
Here is the answer in the Byzantine scores!
A common musical sound identity emerges from the pages of a prayer book.
The common identity between Eastern and Western Christianity is buried by historical events.
Italian people are therefore deeply Christian but have forgotten their roots.
Tradition of Christian prayer has its roots in Roman-Byzantine chant.
It is the song of the Orthodox Church, which is expressed in the 8 musical ways.
Here re-emerges the psalmody of the first centuries after Christ for the review of To-Spirituality.
Irene Rotondale alias Irini Pasi and the Orthodox priest Pater Iossìf meet.
They explain to the public the relationship between Byzantine music and the breath.
Also between the rhythm of prayer and that of the human voice.
The prayer of the heart is that practiced by the monks and masters of Mount Athos.
Hence the song of praise in its 8 musical and breathing modes.
It is therefore a fascinating journey full of interesting stages in search of true spirituality.
There will also be a practical singing phase for the participants.
