Cristina Fanelli Graziana Palazzo
This release is a musical journey that leads from the darkness of Golgotha to the light of the Resurrection. AD LUCEM is a musical project composed and performed by Paolo Palazzo and inspired by the paintings of the brothers Krzysztof and Michal Powalka. The sacredness of the Latin texts, taken from the Tenebrae and from other writings based on the same subject, blends with a cinematic and multiform sound. The vocal pieces, performed by the sopranos Cristina Fanelli and Graziana Palazzo, with the featuring of the cellist Gaetano Simone with the kamanchech in the piece "Rex Israel", and the interpretation by the organist Leonardo Carrieri of the toccata "Velum templi scissum est", crystallize the faith and sentiment of pious women and disciples; the instrumental pieces instead refer to the violence of Jesus' persecutors on Calvary.
