Behind the hundreds of islands and history of wars, the Croatian coastal region of Dalmatia hides endless musical treasures. In this powerful musical fresco, four female singers of Dialogos and six traditional cantors from Croatia explore the richness of Dalmatian musical traditions, at the boundaries of Roman Catholic and Byzantine worlds since the Middle Ages. Between rare gems from Latin manuscripts, and polyphonic Glagolitic chants from the coastal, insular and hinterland regions of Croatia, this recording reveals a tradition of the liturgical year going from Advent to Holy Week and invites us to discover this small country on the Adriatic Sea, with its rich and ancient musical roots born between the Western and Eastern Roman Empires.
