about

Northern Harmony is a shifting collaboration of accomplished singers and instrumentalists, based in Vermont, which has won a wide reputation for its powerful sound, relaxed and spontaneous stage presence, and eclectic repertoire of music from choral traditions around the world.

This incarnation of the ensemble is a quartet of four powerful women singers, all professional performers and teachers in their own right, including Northern Harmony's co-director Patty Cuyler. Rounding out the quartet are Mollie Stone, conductor at the University of Chicago and Director of World Music at the Chicago Children's Choir, Suzannah Park, a third-generation singer of American ballads and folksongs, and Emily Miller, old-time country singer and fiddler with the Sweetback Sisters.

This compilation of live concert recordings from the group's January, 2015 tour in Illinois & Massachusetts features an eclectic mix of harmony singing on the subjects of love, loss, praise and cold weather, with music from the Renaissance performed alongside traditional duets, trios and quartets from the United States, Georgia, Corsica, Sweden and South Africa.

Track Name: Hor che la vaga Aurora (Vittoria Aleotti)
Now that lovely Dawn
riding a fiery chariot
appears everywhere
with Latona's son
and shows her flaxon hair
to the Alps
and to the countryside near us
With sweet tones
he plays his tuned lyre
so that wandering spirits
listen intently
to the harmonies
that lift and send
our souls heavenward
Track Name: Så vandra vi (Sweden)
As we wander all the earth
The one with the other
Come, good you are, and consider
Wherever you may soon be wandering
You are building a house
You want peace
See, this is your house
Where you will live
The bed where you will rest
Track Name: Tota pulcra es Maria (Corsica)
Thou art fair, O Maria, and there is no stain of original sin in thee
Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel
Thou art the honor of our people, thou art the advocate of sinners
O Maria, O Maria! Virgin most prudent, mother most merciful
Pray for us, intercede for us,
with our lord Jesus Christ
Track Name: U ventu (Corsica)
How the wind runs, it can wear away at time. The heart, like stars, leaves behind sparks.

And intertwined lives; quiet water can burst walls. Only love remains; the roots of memory must not die

Blood will congeal, and the hearthstone will turn white, if we lose our passion
Track Name: Alilo (Georgia)
Congratulations for Christmas and for the New Year!
Good health to you!
Track Name: Jamata (Georgia)
O le, lile [no inherent meaning], poor Jamata, ole, lile....
O le, lile, Ghebi follows you and your band...
O le, lile, the weapon struck you in the back...
Ol e, lile, blood runs from you in streams...
Track Name: Sibenje ngoMaria (South Africa)
We will sit at the feet of Anna, and pray to Mary.
