   Here, Catherine Braslavsky offers her most personal and original album. With song, all is possible, including an imaginary language (Owaha) and a hymn to dissolve violence (Psaume 23).

    For twelve female voices, the Terra Sancta choir is dedicated to the sacred repertoires of the Mediterranean, the Middle Ages, and today. Founded in 2000, the choir has sung in many places, such as the basilica of Saint-Denis, of Vézelay, Chartres cathedral, and in many churches and concert spaces in Paris.
