A program that immerses itself in Sephardic and Arab-Andalusian chants, like leaves of an ancient parchment whispering the very essence of human culture. These chants, more than mere melodies, stand as ritual pillars, transmitted through generations, carrying beliefs and values that intertwine the earthly with the divine. Capella de Ministrers interprets these musical gems rescued from medieval Spain and the Sephardic diaspora, which encapsulate the cultural richness of the Jewish and Arab communities that once shared the Iberian Peninsula.
