music for easter
Two albums which go especially well with the many facets of rejoicing at the Easter season (Passover and spring, as well) are Hanneke Cassel’s Some Melodious Sonnet, a collection of original and traditional fiddle tunes grounded in Scottish tradition, and Shannon Heaton’s The Blue Dress, which comprises lively and thoughtful adventures in Irish flute. Both of these women are fine interpreters of traditional music, and gifted composers as well. Give a listen.
