Corul bărbătesc al facultăţii de Teologie „Andrei Şaguna” Sibiu
Conductor: Pr. Dr. Sorin Dobre

The Podobia is a religious song with text and its own melody. In the Orthodox worship each of the eight voices has a number of „podobii” which learned by heart, will be used by the singer for performing other liturgical hymns. In Transilvania these songs have been mostly lost even though the priest Dimitrie Cunţan noted them down in 1890. This concert is attempting to recover, preserve and promote the unique melody of the Transylvanian Orthodox Church. We also entitle Podobia the old songs gathered by old singers that adorned the cult of the Orthodox Church in Transylvania for centuries. The songs are processed, adapted and harmonized for a male choir by Father Sorin Dobre.
