Moscow Patriarchal Choir in Prague

Drevnerusskij Raspev – choir tradition of Old Russia 26th and 27th of September, Moscow Patriarchal choir Drevnerusskij Raspev – choir tradition of Old Russia is going to take us into the bewitched world of old Russia liturgy tradition.

Drevnerusskij Raspev is formed by a dozen of male singers – the set number for small churches of old Russia. The choir is the only ensemble that concerts about detailed musicology research and musical practice of orthodox liturgy at the same time. And also the only one, that is able to decipher and reconstruct old manuscripts.

“The ensemble started to concert in 1987, the first concert for general public took place in the Small Hall of Moscow conservatory. The director was in shock, when he saw us in our clerical wear.” Its conductor and founder Anatolij Grindenko depicts the choir beginnings. In 80’s he belonged to the first propagators of historic music in Russia. We must realize that at that time it must have been something of a missionary work, because religious tradition was suppressed by the communist regime.

This world unique performance you can see and hear at Ceske muzeum hudby, 26th and 27th September, within the frame of Strings of Autumn (Struny Podzimu), starting 7,30pm. Ceske muzeum hudby is placed in Karmelitska 2, Prague.
