(5 out of 5 stars)
"Vaillant (mandolin/mandola -writer and arranger), Sette (a professional stone mason and singer) and Chemirani (Iranian percussionist) present a program of Christian music from Provence that explores the death and resurrection of Christ, the sorrows of his mother and the hope of Christian faith in acoustic, modern settings that are as powerful as they are sparse.
"Three remarkable musicians have joined together to revive and enliven the traditional Christian music of Provence, lending it a modern pan-Mediterranean feel and an ancient French wisdom... There is a sparseness to the arrangements, which rarely have more than three distinct instruments playing at any moment. But this very element is also what makes the music so abundant. There is complex interplay between the musicians, with intuitive turns of phrase that make this a very rich recording." - CF
