Vox Silentii: Passio Sanctarum Filiarum: Medieval Chants for Female Saints

fok9it The medieval chants collected here have the common theme of being dedicated to female saints …

… it’s appropriate, then, that a women’s ensemble should be performing them. Finnish group Vox Silentii consists of two singers, Johann Korhonen and Hikka-Liisa Vuori, with exceptionally pure and supple voices.

The vocal group Vox Silentii was founded in 1992. The singers believe the human voice is a bridge to a world you cannot see and the heavenly connection gives you silence and peace. This is their fourth recording on the Proprius label and was recorded in the Naantali Church outside Turku in the south-western part of Finland. The acoustics in that particular church – together with the human voice – form an atmosphere of silent, intense praying.
