Mater Dolorosa – Femmes au Tombeau

Mora Vocis

Created and recorded within the context of the 38th International Festival of the Abbey of Sylvanès, Mater Dolorosa – Femmes au Tombeau mixes liturgical plays and songs from the medieval repertoire with the music of composer/interpreter Caroline Marçot.

The five singers of Mora Vocis begin the album as mourners departing for Christ’s tomb to embalm him and pray. Finally, greeted by news of the Resurrection, their lamentations transform into hallelujahs and rejoicing motets.
