Synopsis

In the 20th century, Daniel-Lesur was recognized as a genius of religious music by modernising the ageless sacred genre with his most popular creation: "Le Cantique des Cantiques".

The French Renaissance was a golden age for choral music. Songs by Dufray and Bouzignac provided the entertainment of choice for knights and nobles and their beauty inspired Daniel-Lesur in his musical adaptation of the biblical Song of Songs.

This concert, filmed in Hong Kong, is an enchanting paradox with 25 singers paying tribute to the essence of sacred music. Their Chinese voices of extraordinary purity bring a new emotion to the most French of repertoires.
