Feminine Fusion

S4-16: Winter Music


“The color of springtime is flowers; the color of winter is in our imagination.”  – Terri Guillimets


We are heading toward the depths of winter here in the northern hemisphere.  It is a season marked by long nights and short days, when we start bundling up against the cold, often looking inward as we reflect on the season.  So grab some cocoa or a hot toddy, settle in by the fire, and take a listen to some winter music from medieval to modern times.
