Catherine Braslavksy, renowned singer-songwriter from Paris, will be offering Ave Eva, an interfaith concert of sacred music in praise of the sacred feminine for the Feast of the Annunciation. Gregorian chants, Medieval Jewish and Arabic music, pilgrimage songs dedicated to the Virgin Mary, music of Hildegard of Bingen, French Troubadours and new songs composed based on The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, The Gospel of Thomas and texts discovered in Nag Hammadi weave together with spoken word in a profound and heart opening event dedicated to fostering world peace and healing.
Catherine Braslavksy (voice, dulcimer and tambour ) comes to us from Paris and has been entrusted by the French Government with preserving the cultural patrimony of France. Deeply steeped in the music of the Middle Ages from Christianity, Islam and Jewish sources, she has recorded eight albums of sacred music ranging from Hildegard von Bingen to Arabic chants and the Cantigas de Santa Maria. Catherine has produced seven theatrical pieces in collaboration with her late husband Joseph Rowe ( the English translator of The Gospel of Thomas and The Gospel of Mary) that have been performed in sacred sites around the world including Thoronet Abbey, Chartres Cathedral and the Basilica of Mary Magdalene in Vezelay.
