"Experience the captivating beauty of Byzantine chant, widely regarded as one of the oldest musical traditions still performed today. This ancient vocal art-form beautifully merges spirituality and artistry, its intricate melodies resonating with sacred origins. Haunting vocal drones intertwine with the melodies, creating a mesmerising tapestry of sound. Immerse yourself in the resplendent chants that honour the Orthodox Church's major ecclesiastical feast days. Let the ethereal vocals of the Australian Byzantine Choir transport you to sacred realms, touching your soul with their heavenly resonance." read the announcement from the choir.
