Armonia Nova, a Washington D.C. based ensemble of period instruments and voices, performs the third program in its series on medieval women in music, with a concert exploring the medieval belief in the miraculous, a world of allegorical thought and hidden meanings, intervoven through songs of the natural world and the people and animals that inhabit it.  A nightingale, a panther in league with Jupiter and Mars, a unicorn, a turltle dove flying over a meadow, music written in the shape of a harp, a marvelous serpent - evoke images full of meaning and wonder for the inhabitants of this world.  Armonai Nova invites you to see the world through medieval eyes, to experience the marvelous.

This concert is presented in honor of EMA's 25th Annniversary.
