In Cuglieri, Sardinia, festivities during Holy Week are accompanied by a choir called “su concordu”. The choir is composed of four specialised male voices, and they perform the latin Miserere and Stabat Mater. The four elderly singers have been careful to pass on to their sons this patrimony, which miraculously survived the centuries thorugh oral tradition. The film presents these two generations of singers intensely performing and participating in the Easter Triduum.
