Musica Sacra is an annual festival in Maastricht devoted to sacred music. In 1998 the theme of the festival was ‘Apocalypse’ and Krisztina de Châtel was invited to make a short choreography on a piece by Pierre Henry. Both the sacred music and the setting – the Keizerszaal of the St. Servaas Basilica – contributed to the atmosphere of the choreography.
