Prerequisites and Skills for Sacred Chanting in Orthodox Worship

Wednesday, May 30 (evening) – Saturday, June 2 (afteroon), 2018

Thessaly Conference Center – Melissiatika, Volos, Greece

Comment by Oliver Gerlach on February 21, 2018 at 8:58

The topic of the Conference was chosen according to Department’s principle that its meetings must have an interdisciplinary approach, open to all possible scientific and artistic approaches to the study of Psaltiki, i.e. the art of Orthodox chanting, in order to give birth to productive reflection, innovative ideas and fruitful collaborations among scientists of the same or differnet disciplines, who are interested to include the chanting art of the Byzantine tradition, of older or newer times, in their research interests.

Given the approach above, the term “prerequisites” can and must be understood in the broadest possible way, thus highlighting the interdisciplinary character of the Conference. In this frame, the “prerequisites” can have a theological orientation (e.g. dogmatic or moral), liturgical (e.g. ceremonial, concerning the Typicon), philological (concerning the language of the hymnography), vocal (in terms of technique), theoretical (regarding the knowledge of the theory, the notation, the rhythm etc), aesthetical and in general artistic, and in the last years, musicological as well.

But beyond the prerequisites for the better performance of the sacred chanting, always there must be a research and examination of broader possible skills, which can contribute to the training of the bearers of the art of Psaltiki, and thus to the more essential interaction of the chanting during the holy worship. In this way, further knowledge of music (folk or traditional, West-European, secular or of any other kind) as well as virtuosity in musical instruments, studies of musicology (e.g. musical palaeography, history of music etc), education in pedagogics, psychology, sociology and social anthropology, history and even in positive sciences (physics, mathematics, medicine, comuter science etc) can as well act as tools for the research and improvement of the art of sacerd chanting, and also can borrow from the art of chanting tools for broadening and supporting of their own activities.
