"Gloria in cielo e pace in terra"

Heavenly music for Christmas from 5 centuries

 

The message of the " star of Bethlehem" occupies people since centuries and inspires the imagination of artists since the early Middle Ages. Numerous manuscripts and song collections tell about the "star which illuminates all people, rich and poor, big and small, rulers and farmers". Still today this medieval tradition is continued in traditional Christmas songs in which the saints are represented not as heavenly creatures, but as "normal" people who participate in the everyday life and bring the message of the peace.

 

Music from the 13th - 16th century from manuscripts and oral tradition, from an old Europe full of myths, legends and saints - a journey all the way down the mediterranean on the traces of the star of Bethlehem.
