Santa Fe Women's Ensemble presents Songs of the Spirit.

Songs of the Spirit feature words and harmonies that celebrate the deep connection that music brings to our life journey through the world and within ourselves.

The Ensemble will perform the world premiere of our commissioned work, “Do You Know the Land?” by acclaimed composer Emma Lou Diemer on a text translated from Goethe. Accompanied by guitar, the piece remembers what is past, with one who is loved.

Included in the program are a cappella pieces, including “In Magna Symphonia” by Joshua Shank with texts by Prudentius and Hildegard von Bingen.

Other pieces feature the Ensemble with flute, saxophone, guitar or piano accompaniment: “Cantate Domino,” by Alec Schumacker, “I will Lift Up My Eyes,” by Z. Randall Stroope, “ In Time of Silver Rain,” by Rene Clausen, “A Celtic Blessing of Light,” by Eleanor Daley, “Every Child has Known God,” by Mark Sirett and “My Song,” by David N. Childs. The Ensemble also performs “Magnificat,” by Santa Fe resident and Ensemble soprano, Linda Rice Beck.
