The Harpa Dei Choir is made up of four siblings, both in blood and in spirit: Nikolai, Lucia, Marie-Elisée and Mirjana Gerstner. Born in Germany, they grew up in Ecuador, in South America.
All four have as their spiritual foundation the long formation they have received in a religious community of Catholics.
Since 2011, as part of a peace initiative, the siblings have been called to evangelization through Sacred Music. In this sense, Harpa Dei tries to collect the most beautiful songs from different traditions, in order to glorify God, and, on the other hand, to transmit to people the beauty of the Lord, which shines so eminently in Sacred Music.
Since then, their mission has taken them to many countries in the world, including Mexico, Israel, Germany, Russia, Ecuador, Lithuania, the United States, and so on.
Harpa Dei hopes to be able to contribute to recovering and creating sensitivity towards the musical tradition of the universal Church, which, in the words of Vatican Council II, “constitutes a treasure of inestimable value, which stands out among other artistic expressions.” (Constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium).
