Milanese nun Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602–c. 1677), in “Regna terræ, cantate Deo,” reminds us that women were finding a place in a very limiting society. Hildegard (c. 1098–1179) expresses her unique poetic voice in “Caritas Abundat.” From more current times, Linda Studley and Marie-Claire Saindon join talents in “The Voyage,” the Ensemble’s latest commissioned work; and Abbie Betinis’ “aural origami” in “A Blessing of Cranes” was inspired by the Japanese story from the end of World War II of how paper cranes came to be the worldwide symbol of peace.

“Each musical selection came from a time of hardship and challenge,” explains Dr. Raney. “How can one not be heartened by what has been generated from personal struggles?”

The Ensemble is joined by Dana Winograd, cello; Diana Sharpe, percussion; Dave Anderson, flute; and their own pianist, Bill Epstein. Says Dr. Raney, “The musical styles you will experience range from lush harmonies to rhythmic extravaganzas. Don’t miss this varied collection of pieces perfect for inspiration during this time of ours!”

Concerts are at First Presbyterian Church at 3 p.m. on Sunday April 14 and Sunday April 21. General admission tickets are $30 in advance at www.sfwe.org, $35 at the door if available. Tickets for students and teachers, military and veterans are $12.

There will be an abridged version offered as a free children/youth concert, with accompanying adults, on Saturday April 20 at 3 p.m., featuring lively spring themes of birds, wind and dancing. RSVP by April 16 with text or phone call to (505) 303-8648. Please give family name and number of young people attending to allow us to prepare interactive accessories.

This project is supported in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
