https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB9oOR-XFE4 "Lo Boièr" é a canção identitária da Occitânia e talvez a única composição musical cátara que sobreviveu para ser conhecida. Tem ligações profundas com a Cruzada Albigense que exterminou não apenas os Cátaros, mas toda a Occitânia, uma civilização inteira que havia produzido a flor da cultura medieval. Sendo toda guerra religiosa uma guerra … Continuar lendo LO BOIÈR (“O PASTOR”) – Música Cátara

If it be your will – Antony Hegarty

I'm sorry Mr. Cohen, but just this once, the cover beats the original... This is by far one of the most beautiful things that have ever touched my ears and heart.
