Orthodox spiritual music: historical and cultural aspects of development

Alexander Antonenko, Margarita Antonenko

Abstract


The purpose of the article is historical and cultural and structural analysis of the spiritual music of the Orthodox tradition. The methodology of the study consists in the use of historical and systematic methods that allowed us to consider spiritual music as a significant historical and cultural phenomenon to substantiate its social significance. Scientific novelty consists of conceptual comprehension of religious music of the Orthodox tradition, substantiation of its structure, historical and socio-cultural role. Conclusions. The development of Ukrainian culture cannot be imagined without the temple art of Orthodoxy. Spiritual music, along with architecture and painting, is its most significant component. Religious music, along with architecture and painting, is its most vital component. It embodies the fusion of critical cultural elements - art and religion. The historical development of the spiritual music of the Orthodox tradition is characterized by its gradual secularization and formation, along with liturgical (purely liturgical) - paraliturgical and extraliturgical directions. Each of them is represented by numerous genres and layers of musical works that occupy an essential place in the history of the development of the national musical culture. They are not only cultural values but also a kind of artistic revelation of many generations of the Ukrainian people whose history is closely connected with the Orthodox Church and deeply permeated by it religious influence.
