The history of church singing goes back to deep hoary antiquity. Christ himself set an example, when, after the Last Supper, "singing" went to the Mount of Olives accompanied by his disciples. “Sing to our God, sing” - the psalm says, and founded by the Lord himself, existing for more than twenty centuries, the Church has preserved the tradition of song praising the Creator.
Regent in Latin means "ruling". This is the name of the leaders (conductors) of church choirs in the Russian Orthodox Church. Currently, the demand for musicians capable of organizing or leading an already established church choir (choir) is very high. This is explained by the constant increase in the number of active churches, parishes and dioceses of the Russian Orthodox Church.
