Of Special Interest
Trefoil122007 One of the best antidotes to the incessant Christmas "muzak" is a first-rate program of medieval music.

This season, you can hear one of the world's premier medieval ensembles, TREFOIL-- Drew Minter, Marcia Young, and Mark Rimple accompanying themselves on harps and psaltery-- performing eloquent music from 14th-century Italy.  Salon Sanctuary Concerts, Saturday, December 10, at 8pm, at Church of the Epiphany, 74th Street at First Avenue.  Click here for more info and tickets.


For a concert of joyous music celebrating both the Jewish and Christian holidays, visit Bargemusic in Brooklyn on December 17 at 8 pm for The Western Wind's program "Holiday Light."  The venerable New York a cappella ensemble also performs on December 23rd at the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
