So you …
shall arise in the end
as you rose in the beginning
when the blossom that sustains you
blooms
on all the boughs in the world.
Omirum admirandum, Hildegard von Bingen

The edges of winter soften, the winds lose their cold grip, traces of spring emerge. It is a promise and a certainty each year; winter will give way to spring. Thus it is with the Lenten season. Sorrow gives way to joy. This beautiful theme has been carried down in sacred music through the centuries. The music of this concert exemplifies the exquisite beauty in this spiritual and contemplative transitional time of year.
