These seven short pieces were composed between 7-20 February, 2006. They are part of the same project. In writing them, I wanted to honor the sculptors (most of whom are anonymous) of these religious masterpieces, which are moving even to non-believers. These works, whether one likes it or not, are all part of the same cultural universe. I also wished to re-create the uncomplicated expression of "naïve faith. " For that reason, they are not without a certain degree of "sentimentality." It would therefore be best not to add even more expression in their interpretation than is absolutely necessary.
