About this product
- DescriptionBook & DVD. This book presents for the first time the complete chant repertory of an orally transmitted repertory of church hymns for the celebration of the Byzantine Rite in Sicily. This body of chant has been cultivated by the Albanian-speaking mirities since their predecessors from Albania and rthern Greece arrived in Sicily as refugees in the late fifteenth century, as a result of the Turkish invasion of the Balkan region. Bartolomeo di Salvo (19161986), a Basilean monk from the monastery of Grottaferrata, prepared the transcriptions for the series Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae in the 1950s, but they were never published. Girolamo Garofalo, ethmusicologist from Palermo, and Christian Troelsgard, secretary of the Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae, Copenhagen, have discovered the transcriptions and related documents in archives in Sicily, Grottaferrata, Rome and Copenhagen. As a result of their findings, this unique chant collection is w being made available for the first time. The languages used in the book are English / Italian (front matter and indices) and Greek (the chant texts).
- Author BiographyBartolomeo di Salvo (1916-1986) was born in Piana degli Albanesi, Sicily. In 1937 he took the vows of a monk and was ordained a priest in 1940. After WW II he entered the Basilean monastery in Grottaferrata, 20 km south of Rome. He engaged in the study of Byzantine music under the direction of p. Lorenzo Tardo. Di Salvo has published a number of important articles on the medieval Byzantine chant on the basis of his studies in the musical manuscripts kept in the libraries of Grottaferrata and elsewhere. During the 1950s he travelled in Sicily to collect the material which is presented here. Girolamo Garofalo is senior researcher in ethnomusicology at the University of Palermo, Italy. He has specialized in the study of the chant traditions of the Albanian-speaking minorities in Sicily and published a number of books and articles on the subject. Christian Troelsgard is associate professor in Greek and Latin philology at the University of Copenhagen and secretary of the Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae, an international project for the promotion of editions and studies of Byzantine chant.
