The 'Vera Choir' started 20 years ago and with time grouped about 50 members, from various nationalities, cultures and ages.
The 'Vera Instrumental Ensemble' is composed of professional musicians who have attained the highest awards at major musical conservatories and universities.
Gilles Hainault, Music Director of I.D.E.A.L. composed most of the music pieces recorded on these CDs. He also harmonized and arranged melodies and themes by Peter Deunov.
Peter Deunov (1864-1944), a Bulgarian philosopher and composer was an accomplished violinist and composed hundreds of melodies and songs that became spiritual exercises in the school he founded at the turn of the 20th century. These simple but beautiful melodies were inspired from traditional Bulgarian folk music or from ancient sacred themes.
