“Every time, it’s a miracle. Here are all these people, full of heartache or hatred or desire, and we all have our troubles and… it all disappears, just like that, when the choir begins to sing. Everyday life vanishes into song , you are suddenly overcome with a feeling of brotherhood, of deep solidarity, even love, and it diffuses the ugliness of everyday life into a spirit of perfect communion." M. Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog
