The Psaltiki Pascha 2013 on Mount Athos Award competition has commenced!

Since 2009 Psaltiki is the proud sponsor of the bi-annual Holy Week on Mount Athos Award, providing the opportunity for a student of Byzantine Chant to spend Holy Week in a Mount Athos monastery.

The purpose of the award is to allow students of the Byzantine chant tradition to come into contact with the living psaltic heritage in one of its most traditional settings, the Monastic Republic of Mount Athos. The award is geared toward providing access to artistic excellence and reinvigorating the tradition in America, where most students of this traditional art form do not have the opportunity to witness the chant in its native liturgical setting.

Ὥσπερ γὰρ τὰ τῆς ψυχῆς νοήματα γνωρίζομεν καὶ σημαίνομεν δι’ ὧν προφέρομεν λόγων, οὕτως, τῆς πνευματικῆς ἐν ψυχῇ ἁρμονίας τὴν ἐκ τῶν λόγων μελῳδίαν σύμβολον εἶναι θέλων ὁ Κύριος, τετύπωκεν ἐμμελῶς τὰς ᾠδὰς ψάλλεσθαι, καὶ τοὺς ψαλμοὺς μετ’ ᾠδῆς ἀναγινώσκεσθαι.
Just as we make known and signify the thoughts of the soul through the words we express, so too the Lord wished the melody of the words to be a sign of the spiritual harmony of the soul, and ordained that the canticles be sung with melody and the psalms be read with the canticles.

—Saint Athanasios the Great (AD 296-373), Letter to Marcellunus.
