The North Coastline of Sardinia. Castelsardo. A town made of wind and voices. During the Holy Week it becomes the stage of a complex and fascinating ritual. The undisputed leading actors are the singers of the Santa Croce Congregation.
A brotherhood. A group of singers. A group of men. A unique aim inspires their motionless time: exit on the “carréra” and sing the Passion of Christ. Their voices ferry us towards a sacred theme that is well understood. Their voices are heard in the dark alleys, in the effort of going beyond the limits of the day by day life and humanity with the will of being redeemed through the voice. A world of men. Of men’s voices above which there is the One, ethereal, virtual, the Lady’s voice. The quintina.
