About Archaion Kallos Festival 2022:

Once again, the Philokallia Association invites you to the Archaion Kallos International Festival of Orthodox Music. Join us for a beautiful spiritual and musical experience. In its literal sense, the Greek expression “archaion kallos” means “ancient beauty,” but in the vocabulary of the Holy Fathers of the Eastern Christian Church, “archaion kallos” speaks of a certain archetype, an “original beauty;” that is to say, the beauty which man beheld in Paradise and which he experienced after Creation. 

The Philokallia Association (philokalliaa word of Greek origin meaning “love of the beautiful”) gave this name to the first and only festival of Orthodox music in Prague because we perceive every act in sacred music, whether of composition or interpretation, as a kind of conscious or unconscious search for this pristine beauty, the Archaion Kallos.

The festival is held under the auspices of:

the Minister of Culture, Martin Baxa,
the Mayor of Prague 2, Alexandra Udženija,
the Ambassador of the Hellenic Republic H.E. Mr. Athanassios Paressoglou,
the Ambassador of the Republic of Cyprus, H. E. Mr. Antonios Theocharous

and with the blessings of
His Eminence Michal, Archbishop of Prague and the Czech Lands
