about

What is music and dance?An expression of that which is felt in the heart but which cannot be described in words.Manipulation of found,created and recreated sound,form and movement.The realization of structure and harmony through vibration,the meaningful wedding of poetry,melody and rhythm .The spectrum of human experience described in sound and movement.
All cultures throughout history have always been compelled to create music,song and dance and ancient cultural archetypes are always present in any of those creations.The discovery and realization of these eternal truths is fascinating and enriching for all.
In order to understand the present and develop the future we must engage with the past.The approach taken here is that of using existing chant melodies and secular devotional songs from the middle ages as an inspirational springboard for composition and performance whilst maintaining the integrity of the original.If we can experience the symbiotic relationship between the sacred and secular with open and eager minds and ears it can be a wonderful and engaging journey of spiritual discovery and rediscovery.I hope this music goes a little way in realizing that goal.

Ave Maris Stella Hail Star of the Sea
Dei mater alma Nurturing Mother of God
Atque semper virgo Eternally virgin
Felix caeli porta Happy gate of Heaven

Solve vincla reis Loosen the chains of the guilty
Profer lumen caecis Give light to the blind
Mala nostra pele Dispel our evil
Bona cuncte posce Entreat for us good things

Monstra te esse Matrem Show yourself to be a mother
Sumat per te precem Through you may he receive prayers
Qui pro nobis natus Who for us was born
Tulit esse tuus Undertook to be your own
Track Name: She Who is All
Again and again I heard a voice say

I am She whom you love

I am She who you desire

I am She whom you intend

I am She who is all

I am She who is all
Track Name: Voi Ch'amate
Voi ch’amate lo Criatore You who love the Creator
ponete mente al meo dolore turn your thoughts upon my grief

Ch’io son Maria co lo cor tristo For I am the heavy hearted Mary
la quale avea per figliuol Cristo Christ was my son
la speme mia et dolce aquisto My hope and sweet asset
fue crocifixo per li peccatori Was crucified for sinners

Figliuolo mio,persona bella My son,my handsome one
manda consiglio alla poverella send advice to this poor woman
Gironne laxa taupinella I will go away sorrowful
and wretched
K’agio perduto Cristo d’amore For I have lost the loving
Christ

Chi mi consiglia?Chi m’aiuta? Who can advise me?
Who can help me?
La mia speranza aggio perduta I have lost my hope
In tant’angoscia l’anima e parduta With much anguish

dal suo corpo pieno d’aulore from his body
full of fragrance
Track Name: Sancta Maria
O Pia virgo mater et alma O Loving Virgin and nurturing Mother
