Cappella Romana, founded in 1991, is a vocal chamber ensemble dedicated to exploring the musical traditions of the Christian East and West, with emphasis on early and contemporary music. Cappella Romana’s name refers to the medieval Greek concept of the Roman oikoumene (inhabited world), which embraced Rome and Western Europe as well as the Byzantine Empire of Constantinople (“New Rome”) and its Slavic commonwealth. In addition to its commitment to mastering the Byzantine and Slavic repertories in their original languages, Cappella Romana has also championed works by contemporary composers such as Michael Adamis, Christos Hatzis, Ivan Moody, Arvo Pärt, John Tavener, and Tikey Zes. Cappella Romana tours regularly and made its European début at the 2004 Byzantine Festival in London. The same year the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York presented the ensemble and released the CD Music of Byzantium.
