David Ensemble was established in 1975 and was composed of four artists; George Kyrillos, the conductor of the ensemble, chanter and lute player, Nagi Fayek a pianist, Edward Hanna a violinist and Moris Aziz a guitarist. They specialized in performing “Coptic Hymns” which are about 2000 years old and have survived the past centuries and reached us by handing them over from generation to generation through ‘oral tradition’. 
This hymnal tradition is considered the natural continuation of the Pharaonic hymns, and the existence of which of which due to its preservation by the Coptic Orthodox Church is considered to be a miracle that astonished the entire world. 

The ensemble is also distinguished for presenting the psalms which were written and composed by David the Prophet about 5000 years ago, the music of which had perished and nothing has remained but its meaningful words which fathom the soul and scare the spiritual hosts of wickedness. The ensemble tried to put the music for these psalms in a deep spiritual and scientific way, which made a lot of people feel that these tunes might be those that have been composed by David the Prophet himself.
