Anon 4 photoAnonymous 4

Four women got together for a music reading session one afternoon in the spring of 1986; they wanted to hear what medieval chant and polyphony would sound like when sung by female voices. Thirty years later, Anonymous 4 performs for sold-out audiences on major concert series and at festivals throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East; and has made 20 recordings selling over two million copies. Renowned for their unearthly vocal blend and virtuosic ensemble singing, the four women of Anonymous 4 combine historical scholarship with contemporary performance intuition to create their magical sound. After nearly 30 years of international touring and recordings on the harmonia mundi label,  Anonymous 4 will make the 2015 season its last.

Anonymous 4 presents The Last Noel,  an Anthology of their most-beloved songs of Christmas and of other ancient prophecies and miraculous events. From their earliest program,  An English Ladymass, through their last Christmas recording, The Cherry Tree, they have chosen favorites that break the barrier of time,  and speak as eloquently now as they did in the Middle Ages. Rejoicing, lamenting, or recounting a timeless wonder, these are the songs that the women of Anonymous 4 simply have to sing together — one last time.

Join Music@501 for this stellar performance.
