Notre-Dame Cathedral is undoubtedly one of the most known and visited sacred buildings in the world.
Filippo had the privilege of being able to access places closed to tourism and to grasp unexpected images, smells and virtues. But what is the Essence of the Cathedral? We are immediately led to believe that it has only a strong smell of incense. But nothing more incomplete! The smell of Notre-Dame is not incense.
It is today that “moment of smoke” that affects history.
It is also water that overflows from the stones, which flows down the sides of the organ.
It is today the gash of the vaults that brings light from the naked sky. It is the smell of uninterrupted life, of the soul not affected, it is a golden cross that spurts.
It is the Truth that advances.
Notre-Dame 15.4.2019, the true essence, will be a small support to the Maitrise, the ensemble of singers and musicians who guard the priceless heritage of the Sacred Music of the Cathedral.
The proceeds from sales will in fact be donated to the association of “Musique Sacrée”, to help to continue its business and mission, currently outside its own "home".
