Love as the essence of being: the mystical relationship between lovers or between God and a believer has the power to change everything about a person. Patrizia Bovi and her friends have taken this idea as the starting point for their performance of traditional secular and religious music from various Mediterranean cultures. The programme includes troubadour songs for a lover, Sufi music to the glory of God, motets from the Las Huelgas codex and the groups own improvisations.
