Twelfth Night Greetings!

Warm greetings to all of you from Armonia Nova. As many of you know, each Twelfth Night season, we celebrate with you at St. Mark’s and Christ Church. It has become a cherished tradition to offer this gift – joyous, inspiring music from the 12th-17th centuries. We will miss celebrating with you in these beautiful churches; this would have been our 20th season. But we can be reassured that this season always carries a message of hope – a belief that the new year will bring change and that we all can be part of that.

Next year, we will see you again in person. In the meantime, I offer this gift of music: Kim Robertson’s Moonrise. I am playing it on y Lyon & Healy concert harp, built in 1923. It is a more modern harp than you usually see me performing on, but its beautiful sound perfectly conveys the meaning of this piece.

I hope you enjoy the inspiration and serenity found in this gorgeous work and that it provides an interlude of time to reflect on the peace and beauty that are always the center of the Christmas season.

With warmest wishes,
Constance Whiteside,
Director, Armonia Nova
