Sœur Marie Keyrouz & L'Ensemble De La Paix Hymns of Hope

Sister Marie Keyrouz, who comes from a Catholic-Maronite family in Lebanon, sings for peace, light, and salvation. Together with the Ensemble De La Paix she combines the music of different traditions of the Eastern Church into a boundless, paradisiacal chant, which has been handed down by word-of-mouth since the early Christian time: the ascetic melodies of the Syrian Maronites in Aramaic, Syrian, and Arabic language and the imposing Byzantine-Melkite vocal music in Greek and Arabic. The foundation of the Maronite Church goes back to the Armaic-Syrian monk Maron. Mar is the Syrian word for Lord.
