Armenia, the first Christian kingdom, is nowadays a country fighting for it's survival. This disc, recorded both at the Château de Versailles and the Geghard Holy Spear Monastery in Armenia, rekindles the fraternal sentiment between our two peoples and invokes past souls and present ones, such as the virtuoso qanun player Narek Kazazyan, and the beating heart of this programme, in duet with the great cellist Astrig Siranossian and the flautist Helbert Asatryan. By alternating the sacred hymns of the Yerevan Holy Cross Choir with orchestral pieces from the traditional repertoire, it pays the most dazzling tribute to the whole of Armenia, in defence of something that no weapon can ever suppress: it's ancestral soul.
