A musical path is lively by the spirit and seeks an spirit to share: this is the mission, profound and intense that characterizes to Capella Peregrina, that spontaneously links with those languages that engage in the same direction, in all its varieties.
The etymology of the word Peregrina refers to: per (preposition) through, aegrn: cultivated field, aje: suffix. That means, to cross a cultivated field, a transformational path. In mysticism CAPELLA is the temple, the rose in the cabal, the heart. In the chapel were assembled the musicians formerly. Both terms refer to the spiritual and musical nature of the route to follow artistically.
