Meditative concert this Sunday

My women's quintet, Vajra Voices, is singing a meditative vespers service this Sunday in Petaluma. It begins at 5pm at St John's Episcopal Church.  The medieval music is very contemplative and this time, some of our pieces will be accompanied by a harp and vielle.  Here are the details.

A Medieval Vespers
Contemplative Music of Hildegard von Bingen
and Polyphony from the 12th c. St. Martial Manuscripts
Sunday, November 28, 2010, 5 o’clock pm
Saint John’s Episcopal Church, Petaluma, California
Vajra Voices
Ruth Baillie, Lindsey McLennan, Joyce Todd McBride, Celeste Winant
Karen Clark, Director
with Cheryl Ann Fulton, harp,  and Roy Whelden, vielle

The majority of the music is by Hildegard von Bingen.  A German film about her life is currently showing in the US in a few movie theaters. I haven't had a chance to see it yet, but hope to soon. It's called "Vision". 

If you are in the Bay Area, it would be great to see Sunday at 5pm.
