Loosely Woven presents 'Song of Peace'
6th - 20th December, 2009

By Wayne Richmond
Posted Sunday, November 8, 2009

'A Song of Peace' was written in 1934 by Lloyd Stone using the beautiful Finlandia Hymn melody composed by Jean Sibelius. It was later sung by Mary Travers (from Peter, Paul & Mary) who passed away in September. As a tribute to Mary, Loosely Woven begins its 2009 Christmas concert with a spectacular Maria Dunn arrangement of this song.

The program includes two other Peter, Paul & Mary songs, a smattering of carols (including an amazing arrangement of 'Good King Wenceslas') plus the usual Loosely Woven eclectic mix!

There are 28 of musicians performing this time with the biggest line-up of instruments ever including: six string players (violins, viola and two cellos!), harp, flute, clarinets, saxophones, mandolins, guitars, keyboard, concertina, accordion, keyboard and for the first time, a trumpet!

See the 'Song of Peace' web site for details of the program.
