How is one to read a fifteenth century Christian mystic today? And how on the other hand does one do that from an agnostic posture? This question, posed by the poet Olvido García Valdés in his book dedicated to the Saint from Ávila, today receives musical response with this document, prepared by six composers from Spain and the Americas.

Original texts by Saint Teresa provide the base for the creation of six melologues for reciter and piano, composed in her honour by 4 Spanish composers: CARLOS CRUZ DE CASTRO, TOMÁS MARCO, FRANCISCO NOVEL SÁMANO and JOSÉ LUIS TURINA, joined by 2 composers from the Americas, the Venezuelan ALFREDO RUGELES and the Mexican EDUARDO SOTO MILLÁN.

Actor MANUEL GALIANA and pianist MARISA BLANES are the performers in an interpretation which is as lively as it is moving.
