Формация „Трисагион“

Dear Visitor,

A Byzantine chant ensemble “Trisagion” was created in the fall of 2013. It’s purpose was to promote the Eastern orthodox music (the monodic Byzantine chant) in its authentic form and liturgical context as a living theology in hymns.

The founders of “Trisagion” are of the opinion that Eastern orthodox music in Bulgaria is going through a deep crisis owing this not only to the lack of sufficiently trained people, but also to the unfamiliarity of “laos” (God’s people, i.e. the christians) with the real communion in the liturgy.

With the initiative the founders of “Trisagion” have taken, they hope they could contribute to the improvement of the situation, selecting and performing the most remarkable chants, translating and adapting this kind of music precisely, entirely in the spirit of the Orthodox tradition.

Nikola Antonov – Alumnus of the Sofia Theological Seminary “St. John of Rila”. A long-standing member of the Greek Byzantine choir “Δομέστοκοι” under the conduction of Mr. Gregory Papaemmanuil.
