Abstract

Kosta P. Manojlović was a highly significant figure in the development of Serbian choral music and musical education. His studies abroad brought him into contact with repertoires of Western “early music” that had a profound impact on his work. This article discusses his adaptations of Renaissance polyphony found in the archive of the First Belgrade Choral Society.
