Lady of the Lake (Winter's Eve)
Lady of the Lake
As the days grow shorter, our spirits are drawn to rest and renewal. Even as the pace of our lives accelerates to handle the stresses of our seasonal celebrations, our natural instincts urge us to retreat into the darkness. In this darkness we dream and regenerate, making ready for new beginnings, which come as the days lengthen and lighten. Our music recognizes this renewal of the soul and celebrates the fire of light and life.
Lady of the Lake, led by Lisa Lawson’s lyrical soprano, performs instrumental music and epic songs, highlighting cello, violin, and flute against rhythm guitar and drums and the sounds of harp and keyboard. Traditional favorites are interwoven with the Lawsons’ originals, including settings of poetry by Yeats, and tunes inspired by their own lives. As they are also performers of historical music, with Sacramento Baroque Soloists, the group enjoys bringing in the colors of old instruments and styles.
