Le grand livre des musiques sacrées du monde

Gérard Kurkdjian

Book in French. The EIJM just received the latest book by Gérard Kurkdjian, dedicated to sacred music. In 18 chapters, he travels through the great musical traditions in Christianism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Animism…

The spiritual traditions developed a rich repertoire of music and sacred chants through continents and centuries: who could have been a better guide than Gérard Kurkdjian, one of the founders of Fes world sacred music Festival, which he was artistic director during 15 years.

From Gregorian or Orthodox chant to Gospel and requiems, from Arab-Andalusian music or Koran psalmody, to Kabbala’s mystic poets, from Pakistan’s Sufis to whirling dervishes and buddhist chants from Tibet, China, Japan and India, this big trip brings us also to contemporary music, jazz and world music.
