Cappella Romana, the world’s leading early music vocal ensemble for the broad exploration of music of the Eastern Orthodox traditions, returns to London for the first time since 2009 when it was engaged by the Royal Academy of Arts for its mega-exhibition ‘Byzantium: 323-1453’. Its founder and artistic director Dr Alexander Lingas (City University London) will lead an international ensemble of Byzantine cantors from Greece, the UK, and the US, featuring especially Mr Stelios Kontakiotis, principal cantor (protopsaltis) of the Shrine to the Mother of God on Tinos.

This concert is part of an artistic residency in London by Cappella Romana taking place on the 14th and 15th May 2013 and is a collaboration between City University London and Cappella Romana.

For further enquiries please visit the City University London website, the Capella Romana webpage, or email Spyridon Antonopoulos.
