April 22, 2013: The album "Vivre d'Amour," the poems of St. Therese of Lisieux set to music by Gregoire and sung by Natasha St.-Pier, to be released

 (Listen above to the 90-second teaser of Therese's poem "Jeter les fleurs" ("To scatter flowers") sung by Natasha St.-Pier).

On April 22, 2013 the album "Vivre d'Amour," the poems of St. Therese of Lisieux set to music by Gregoire, will be released in France. 

"Vivre d'Amour is a bold and singular project.  It is also a project surprisingly created by the meeting of talents.  And it is above all an encounter between a composer, Gregoire, and the poems written at the end of the 19th century by St. Therese of Lisieux, a Carmelite with an extraordinary destiny who died of tuberculosis in 1897 when she was only 24 years old.  As a variation to the infinite that symbolizes Love, Therese's "Living on Love" is also an unusual project because of its collective dimension.  Several artists accompany the singer Natasha St.-Pier on this album: Anggun on the first single "Vivre d'Amour" ("Living on Love"), Sonia Lacen on "Mes Armes" ("My Weapons'), Elisa Tovatoi on "Rapelle-toi" ("Remember"), and many other surprises. 

The members of the Collective are:  Natasha St-Pier, Anggun, Elisa Tovati, Sonia Lacen, The Stentors Gregory Turpin, Bishop di Falco Léandri, Michael Lonsdale, The Little Singers of the Wooden Cross, and Gregory.
