Until Jane Kodjabashia’s discovery of the manuscript “Psaltic guide” in 2003, Dimitar Zlatanov – Gradoborski (approx. 1800-1887) was known in Byzantine musicology by only two compositions, already issued in a number of Macedonian Church music publications. Initially published by Gradoborski in Greek language in 1886 in Thessaloniki – the original contains tens of Gradoborski’s own compositions affirming him as one of the most significant authors of liturgical chants in the Eastern Orthodox world. Professor Jane Kodjabashia transliterated and translated Gradoborski’s original work and published the aforementioned book, making it available to the wider scientific and cultural audience in Macedonia and abroad for the first time in one hundred and twenty years.
