Chir Hachirim - Het Hooglied

Chir Hachirim, the Song of Songs , is a biblical text that tells a fascinating love story between a king and a princess.

The loaded love aspirations inspire to this day. For recreation Frédéric Tavernier-Velas starts from the ancient Greek text and the Byzantine singing modes and presents a particularly intriguing, trance-generating musical context for Western ears.

The melodic format with Byzantine modes, semi improvised, is built up according to the ethos of each passage. Marc Loopuyt and Léa Macquart accompany and dialogue with the vocals, as it was the practice of the psalm writers.
