Cappella Romana is a vocal ensemble founded in 1991 in Portland, Oregon. Its name, meaning "Roman Chapel", refers to the medieval Greek concept of the Roman oikoumene (inhabited world), which embraced Rome and Western Europe, as well as the Byzantine Empire of Constantinople ("New Rome") and its Slavic commonwealth centered at Moscow. It has become especially known for its exploration of Eastern Orthodox vocal music

London's Royal Academy of Art commissioned Cappella Romana for a new compilation CD for its mega-exhibition, Byzantium: 330-1453. This 'greatest hits' title features music from four Cappella Romana CDs: Epiphany, The Fall of Constantinople, Byzantium in Rome, and Music of Byzantium.

Cappella Romana performs exquisite Byzantine musical treasures-from the cathedrals and monasteries of the Eastern Roman Empire-preserved from destruction in the Egyptian desert at the Greek Orthodox Monastery of St. Catherine at Mt. Sinai. Features music for the medieval celebration of Vespers in honor of St. Catherine, and Byzantium's only liturgical drama, the Service of the Three Youths in the Fiery Furnace.
