Women in Harmony presents Songs of the Spirit
January 2016: Songs of the Spirit, our concert on Women and the Spirit, will explore the myriad ways that women approach and understand the spiritual world. The program will feature songs about the connection between body and soul and about the strength of the human spirit. It will also draw upon the vast body of choral literature about the spirit, including pieces from various religious traditions. Some of the highlights will be the premier of Let Her In, a new song by our accompanist, Deana Ingraham Gurney; two pieces we learned at the Sister Singers Network Festival last July, Cradle Me and Like a Mountain; a set of spirituals; and chants written by 12th century mystic Hildegard of Bingen.
