Āngels Graells en el Cant de la Sibil·la a la basílica de Santa Maria del Mar
Sharing her life with Josep Carbonell, a luthier, has brought her closer to the world of musical shapes and craftsmanship. Helping him out in his workshop, she feels the urge to find new ways to express her own musical inspirations. In order to make them endure, she began to recreate them in engravings and jewelry.
Since 2003 Àngels Graells has sung "The Song of the Sybil", a medieval Catalan chant traditionally sung on Christmas Eve, in one of the finest gothic churches ever to be built, Santa Maria del Mar, in Barcelona. A recording was made of this version in 2007.
