ANIMA MUNDI: The Cosmos Shimmers.Anima

From the mysteries of the musical proportions of the World Soul to the comic messes caused by love and the senses, Anima reflects on the elements and harmonies of body and soul: both universal and all-too-human. Readings paraphrased from Plato's Timaeus.

Anima specializes in music of the Baroque and late Renaissance for voice, violin, and harp-based continuo. Together since 2005, Anima brings the music and culture of the 17th Century into focus for today’s listeners with intimate and engaging concerts. As individuals, its members have performed and recorded with period instrument ensembles throughout the U.S., and in 2016, the group toured Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee with both concerts and educational programs. Anima makes virtuosity approachable -- playful, highly expressive and provocative.
