STAR OF THE SEA
Medieval and Renaissance Music for the Season of Darkness and Light
Saturday, November 29, 2014 - 7 PM
Unitarian Church of Montpelier
Suggested Donation $15 at the door, to benefit the Unitarian Church of Montpelier
Anima is a group of 12 women who bring to life the impassioned music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This late November, they open the season of Advent with music that anticipates the coming light. The concert will feature works of Hildegard of Bingen, Leonel Power, Guillaume Dufay, Giovanni Luigi di Palestrina, Francesco Soriano, Gregor Aichinger, Oswald von Wolkenstein and several Anonymous English composers. Several of these works highlight the image of the Virgin Mary as "Stella Maris." Stella Maris is also a name for Polaris, the North Star or Guiding Star. So, in this darkening season, we sing to the stars as we look to them for light and guidance.
Every Sunday until the Holiday Fair on December 6th there will be containers located near the stage in the Vestry. Please place your good quality donations in one of them. We need items such as children's books, antiques, artwork, seasonal decorating items, jewelry, toys and cookies. NO clothes, please.
Please contact Janet or John Poeton if you have questions. And remember to put the Holiday Fair on your "Must Do" list. See you at the Fair!
