Artemy Vedel (Russian: Артемий Ведель, Ukrainian: Артемій Ведель) (c. 1767–1808)[1] was one of the most prominent Orthodox Church composers of the 18th century. Together with Maksim Berezovsky and Dmitry Bortniansky, Vedel is recognized[by whom?] as one of the Golden Three composers of the period.

He studied music in St. Petersburg and Moscow under Giuseppe Sarti.

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.[1]
