After a magnificent artistic understanding during the working sessions on my Song of Songs (commissioned by the Méliades quartet and created in october 2014), the four singers and myself have decided to continue the musical adventure on the same theme: love and spirituality.
Then it seemed convenient to me to offer to this female voices quartet a historic and linguistic retrospective of the feminine poetic literature.
All the 11 poems, chosen above all as their suggestive strength and their literary quality, have the merit to be very different from each other, and therefore to allow a well differentiated musical processing (best guarantee of the real formal relevance of the cycle).
We shall thus find poems by Erinna (IVth century B.C), Hildegard von Bingen (XIIIth century), Thérèse d’Avila, Chiara Matraini, Louise Labé, Pernette du Guillet (XVIth century), Sophie Brun (XVIIIth century), Marie-Laure Grouard, Emily Brontë, Emily Dickinson (XIXth century) and Christine Boulanger (XXth century)
