After their single in the miniature series, here comes the first full-length album by this Heavenly Voices act, previously known under the name XVII VIE. Karin and Amelie play a romantic, gothic medieval music: keyboards, heavy percussions, beautiful ethereal vocals accompanied by violin, played by Franck Dematteis who already worked for Attrition and Die Form. 'Chuchotements' is a travel through a world of spells. Powerful rhythms, bewitching melodies between Ataraxia, Rosa Crux, XVII Vie and Hyperium's Heavenly Voices Acts!!!

Review : dark life
"Gothic medieval music, percussion, ethereal vocals, keyboards, violin and bewitching melodies, you will find it all on Chuchotements. Strong heavenly voices, bombastic drums, sweet melodies, violin and poetry make this music complete. Even the booklet looks kind of medieval. Sometimes their sounds and singing makes you think of Ataraxia or even Diamanda Galas. Find an easy chair, light some candles and enjoy the music of LES SECRETS DE MORPHEE. " (DARKLIFE)

Review : Fluxeuropa
"In 1998 XVII° became Les Secrets de Morphée, and Chuchotements ('whispers') is their first full-length CD under the new name. Les Secrets consists of Karin and Amélie, who come from western France, accompanied by Franck Dematteis on violin. They employ keyboards, heavy percussion and ethereal vocals to produce a romantic, gothic, mediaeval sound, although the album starts in neoclassical mode. The insert artwork is beautifully designed in the style of an illuminated mediaeval manuscript, and is a fitting accompaniment to yet more beautiful music courtesy of the Prikosnovenie label."

  Review : Fluxeuropa
"Over 1000 people came to the concert given by Les Secrets de Morphée with Faith & The Muse in Paris at La locomotive on 5 April 2000. This is a high-quality live-sound recording from the event featuring five new versions of previous tracks and five unreleased ones. Karin and Amélie combine ethereal voice and neoclassical music with more modern elements to produce an extremely lush, filmic sound.
Vocals on 'Reflets d'Enulid' are especially reminiscent of Ataraxia, and like some of Ataraxia's work, LSdM sometimes put you in mind of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. A Goth edge, however, rescues them from any danger of commercial blandness. The sound quality of this live recording is matched by a brilliant performance which must have been exciting to experience."
