This new disc from the Bouches-du-Rhône Masters brings together four brilliant composers from the end of the 19th century. and the 20th century; five great figures of religious or popular art in their countries. Each of them rose to fame for reasons that are theirs alone, but all share the same passion for the voices of women and children. With equal talent, they made the most of the radiant sonorities, the crystalline timbre, the ethereal and pure character of these voices and succeeded in turning them into strong and vibrant material. This disc brings together their most beautiful examples of compositions for masters, which allow you to discover original texts, under the sign of music full of freshness, simplicity, nevertheless bewitching however, under the double sign of the aristocratic and angelic harp. Catherine Michaut-Pradeilles, music historian
