Georgian chant is sacred chant used in divine services in Georgia. It is unique with its polyphonic character. There are three voices but while listening it is heard as one voice. The great Georgian scholars explained the dogma of Holy Trinity by the phenomena of Georgian chant tradition - three voices, but one chant, or, in other words, three voice (ie hypostases) form one chant (the Trinity).
