The 8 TONES OF BYZANTINE SONG are the way to reach the 8 SPIRITUAL virtues with the voice.

Let’s go deeper, but not too much! Try and believe!

“In sacred song, prayer wants to sublimate the movements of the soul and contemplate the spirit, more perfect”

Isidoro Pelusiota, Egyptian monk of the fifth century.

The ascetic Fathers and Mothers of the first centuries AD they dealt with psychology and spiritual medicine.

They indicated as the cure and prevention of diseases of the spirit:

  • prayer
  • the use of the body
  • art, including Byzantine chant.

  • Guide men and women to know themselves through the use of the voice
