Fascination: Human Voice

 

 

Anyone who has experienced it before will have been surely moved: the mystical feeling that comes over you when you hear a single, straight voice with a Gregorian sequence in a large cathedral – completely pure and without any form of accompaniment. There is hardly a composer who has not composed something for the human voice. Especially in the recurring confrontation with love, with questions of faith and religion, and the reflection on death and transience, there is obviously no better alternative than to let the human singing voice “speak” directly and immediately to us humans.
This oldest and most original instrument, which can reflect all imaginable states of the soul in a direct and unadulterated way, is one of the most fascinating creations and touches us deeply.
