"The crackling and spurting of hemlock in the flames; or of pine logs, which yield glory to the walls and faces in the sitting room,–these are the music and pictures of the most ancient religion. " –Emerson, Nature, Essay VI
As autumn leaves light winter logs, Lynn’s strong, clear voice kindles hearts in chorus with seasonal, nonsectarian songs and poems to celebrate the nature of winter. Rejoice in evergreens and birds, snow and ice, dancing deer, and the mystic spirits of the dark months. Traditional call-and-response and chorus carols from around the northern lands will lift every voice in song.
With spirited and magical foolery in the living tradition of ritual dance and revelry, Lynn leads her singers to "drive the cold winter away" with ancient and familiar house-visiting traditions of wassailing and mummering, bell-ringing, and goodwill toward humankind, and summon up the sun’s returning light for the new year. Let your voices leap and carol with Lynn in a solstice bonfire of song, to build a house of harmony against the winter’s chill.
"She lays her beams in music,/In music every one,/To the cadence of the whirling world/Which dances round the sun." –Emerson, The House
