A journey into Benedictine monasteries, there where the foundations of Europe were built with the sole force of faith and an unwavering belief in ora et labora.
Paolo Rumiz has searched out the disciples of Saint Benedict of Nursia, the patron saint of our continent, in abbeys ranging from the Atlantic to the banks of the Danube, in a journey suspended between an historic account of secular traditions and current affairs. His travels have brought us the stories of those cassocks, which tell us first and foremost that Europe for thousands of years has been an area of migration, encounters and dialogue.
This female vocal group from Gorizia began in 2004 and has always focused on taking part in numerous national and international competitions, thus becoming one of the best-known choirs in Friuli Venezia Giulia. The choristers, who belong to the Slovenian minority and come from the provinces of Gorizia and Trieste, draw on a varied repertoire, ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music, with a particular focus on Slovenian and Italian composers, hence valuing the multiculturalism that characterises Friuli. In 2018, with the collaboration of Susi Ferfoglia, lecturer at the University of Krakow, the group extended the scope of its studies to Gregorian chants, producing the series of meditative concerts Mysteria vitae Christi for choirs and organ improvisations.
