An Deiz a Darzh
Les Chœurs Classiques en Breton

The main classic pieces of the european repertoire have inspired breton authors for a long time, especially during the 19th and the 20th centuries. 
Being conscient of the great value of this heritage for people enjoying songs in breton, René Abjean, a breton composer, has gathered them, and asked the Kanomp Breizh choirs if they would like to record some of them. Some of the songs are sacred, some are secular, but all together they constitute a very interesting anthology, on breton poems by Marie Kermarec, Job an Irien, Visant Seité, both of them well-known authors of Brittany. 
You would recognise Beethoven, Haendel, Bach or sibelius, all those airs taking part of our common culture, sound here a little differently in breton language.
