Traditional Armenian music is distinctive not only in terms of its sound, but also in its structure, which differs in major from the more familiar Western forms. It is monophonic, consisting of a single melodic line without support of harmony. It is built on melody-modes, as opposed to the major and minor scales used in West.The crown jewel of Armenian sacred music is the sharagan, canonical hymn, and the sheer volume of sharagan created over the centuries indicates how beloved the genre was among Armenian monks. Eventually, these hymns were canonized by assigning specific sharagan to particular days in the church calendar. Among other beauties and values of mountainous Armenia, we can provide special offer-Vocal Quintet, for those who appreciate sacred music inside the churches and monuments of Republic of Armenia. Vocal Quintet with its performances of classic and sacred music can make your journey filled with unique musical colors and beauty.The Quintet was established in 1998 by members of Armenian National Academic Choir spreading extensive concert activities in Armenia and abroad (France, Greece, Switzerland, Russia etc.). Academic Choir has participated in many international festivals where large choral pieces were performed. Among those we can mention Mozart, Verdi, Fore’s - “Requiem“-s, Vivaldy- “Stabat Mather”, “Gloria”,”, Carl Orf- “Carmina Burana”, Beethoven- “Fantasy”, “9-th Symphony” etc. Quintet also performs Armenian folk music, worked out by the Armenian outstanding composers Komitas and Ekmalyan, spiritual music, Liturgy, psalm songs.
