This newly researched program celebrates the virtuosic repertory of nun composers.

The music stretches across several eras and empires, from the convents of 17th-century Italy, forward to contemporary Ethiopia with music by Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru, and all the way back to the 9th-century Eastern Roman Empire with the works of Kassia of Byzantium.

This program ignites the heart with Rosa Giacinta Badalla’s exuberant Alleluias, delights the mind with Kassia’s meditative chants, animates the body with Chiara Margarita Cozzolani’s passionate depictions, and sweetens the soul with Hildegard von Bingen’s soaring melodies.

Suore Project takes inspiration from these composers’ cloistered lives and their valiant efforts to perform and publish amidst restrictions on musical expression.
