Moscow Monastery Choir, Sava Center

20. Oct. 2018.

Sava Center, Belgrade – The rise of the Sretensky Choir, which revives the ancient Byzantine-Russian choral tradition, is called holy awe and genuine prayerful feeling.

The choir of the Sretensky Monastery has performed in the Kremlin many times in front of foreign delegations and guests of the President of the Russian Federation.

Since 2005, the choir has become the main choir that follows the services of His Holiness the Patriarch and his pastoral visit to the Russian Orthodox Church Diocese of Russia and abroad.

After the stagnation of choral activities outside the monastery, especially during the reign of Stalin, the choir was rebuilt in 1994, following the blessing of the igumen monastery, Tikhon Shevkunov.
