Septem sacramenta – Franz Liszt

To reform sacred music and raise it to a worthy level has always been a deep ambition
for Liszt. After a turbulent existence, he devotes the end of his life to sacred music.
Quite ignored works of the old Liszt, the vocal pieces we chose (among which the «
Septem sacramenta » almost unheard in our time) reveal an aspect of his creation often
despised although being of a very innovative musical scope and full of an intense
spirituality. The soloists of the Ensemble Gilles Binchois are joined in here by the Choir Altitude which serves this repertoire with investment and enthusiasm.
