Mora Vocis

« As places of meeting and revelation, springs connect the subterranean world with the skies above and lead the depths up to the light ».


Mora Vocis weighs the anchor and sets off for the realm of waters, in quest of the sources of western sacred music. In its nets, a catch of musical treasures : most ancient and prestigious manuscripts, such as those of St Martial de Limoges, Einsiedeln, Worcester, Wolfenbüttel, Florence, Montpellier, dating from the 11th to the 15th centuries. Mora Vocis thus reinvents an enthralling poetic universe in which the voices, lights, architecture and use of space in the concert venue provide a showcase for the free-flowing melodic lines, variegated tones and gushing energy of the great early polyphonies.

The poems sing the praises of the waters of creation, of the baptismal fonts, of the heavenly dew of of divine incarnation, Mary, holy vessel, living spring of joy and lovingkindness. The music of water speaks to us in a universal language. It sings of the origins of life, seeds from heaven, the depths of underground waters, and turns into fruit-bearing, regenerating lifeblood.

The harmonies of the organa, sometimes harsh and bald, bounce on the vaults, almost merging into a song of the stones.

On the borders of poetry and silence, from murmuring voices to gushing polyphonies, from tears of thirst to jubilation, the song of springs reaches our innermost being.
