Estonian vocal ensemble Heinavanker brings its “stunning, life-affirming music” for this program of runic songs, recreating music in an oral tradition dating back thousands of years. The program intersperses these ancient melodies with folk hymns collected among the Finno-Ugric peoples and with movements from a 14th-century setting of the Mass Ordinary. Celebrated for their purity of tone, distinctive blending of voices, and moving improvisations, this ensemble, rarely heard in the United States, brings its luminous, transcendent sound to Roanoke for the first time. Sponsored in part by the Sallie Gray Shepherd Fund.
