“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”  – Pericles

 

Season 2 of Feminine Fusion begins with another look at early music composed by women.  Some of the earliest works on record are from Kassia, a Byzantine abbess – and the only woman to ha e her works incorporated into official service books for use in church worship.  You’ll also be introduced to Khosrovidukht, Tibors de Sarenom, and more.
