NEW CD RELEASE!! Music from the Labyrinth From Chartres to Grace
Diana played her harp at the first labyrinth walks at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral in 1991, and Portia joined her a few years later. Over their many years of playing at Grace’s indoor and outdoor labyrinths and at labyrinths throughout the world, Diana and Portia have composed and improvised a large body of music inspired by these sites and the people who move through them. On this recording they are joined by some of the Bay Area’s finest players who have added their beautiful and heartfelt music to theirs. Includes a beautiful 4″ square personal labyrinth that fits in the CD booklet or can be taken out and used when listening to the music. CD $20.
