Conductor

conductorBorn in 1983 in Hajnówka (Poland). Abijski graduated with honors at the Athens Conservatory on the Faculty of Byzantine Chant and Social Theology at the National University of Athens. The first steps towards Byzantine chant he made thanks to Georgios Chatzichronoglou – the Archont Hymnodos of a Great Church (Patriarchate of  Constantinople) and Athenian first cantor Konstantinos Papachristodoulou. As an experienced musicologist, Marcin studies interrelation between Byzantine chant and old Russian monody, especially in the aspect of liturgical practice. While studying the roots of early Christian liturgical music he cooperated with many significant ensembles: Angelus Chamber Choir, Cantilena Male Chamber Choir, Schola of  Wegajta Theatre, Bornus Consort, Schola of Gregorian Silesiensis and famous Russian ensemble of old music, Sirin. Abijski is as well a member of a Greek byzantine choir, Byzantines Fones. In 2008 Abijski founded Bogdan Onisimowicz Male Chamber Ensemble, where he reconstructs 16th century Supraśl Monastery’s melodies and old forms of  liturgical singing. Marcin gives lectures and leads many workshops in Poland and abroad propagating tradition and Byzantine chant.

* The Archont title is conferred by the Patriarch of Constantinople for the most honoured in the field of Byzantine chant.
