Artemiĭ Luk’i︠a︡novych Vedelʹ

Artemy Vedel (Russian: Артемий Ведель, Ukrainian: Артемiй Ведель; ca. 1767, Kiev, Russian Empire — 1808, Kiev, Russian Empire) was a Russian Imperial military and monastic composer of Ukrainian origin. Together with Maxim Berezovsky and Dmitry Bortniansky, Vedel is recognized as one of the Golden Three composers of the period.

He was born in Kiev and later studied music in St. Petersburg and Moscow under Giuseppe Sarti.

He was also known as a secretary of Russian lieutenant-general Andrey Levanidov and of Russian senator Alexey Teplov.

The V.I. Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine holds the only existing music composition manuscript handwritten by Vedel, the "Score of Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom and Other Compositions". The piece comprises the Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom and various choral works. The ink varies in color, which suggests that Vedel wrote on the manuscript at different times throughout the years.
