Preghiera alla Vergine (Prayer to the Virgin) was written for Festival de Musiques Sacrée, Fribourg – Switzerland. The text is extracted from Dante Alighieri’s Divina Commedia – Paradiso Cantus XXXI (La preghiera di san Bernardo alla Vergine) and describes the Virgin appearing to St. Bernard. The composition is divided into nine short sections and tries to express all the mysticism and power of Dante’s poetry.
