I'm going to be performing with my friend and incredible musician and songwriter, Stuart Edward Meradith on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2022 @ 2pm in the Ryder Gallery of the Malden Public Library for the Annual Holiday Concert of the Malden Historical Society. Ed and I will present holiday and winter songs & instrumentals spanning time & cultures, featuring piano, guitar and mountain dulcimer. FREE Admission. Refreshments follow the concert. Would love to see some friendly faces!
I am a composer & singer, writing music in the operatic, classical and folk traditions. I hope you enjoy discovering my Christmas recording of folk & traditional songs, Ancient Christmas - Songs & Carols, my operas/music dramas, Prince of Peace - A Passion Play and The Rough-Face Girl: An Algonquin Cinderella, and my classical songs and choral pieces.
I look forward to hearing from you with any questions, feedback or requests. Thanks! Gabriella

Here's a YouTube video of myself performing Pied Beauty, my setting of the poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins: (sheet music for solo and 2-part chorus available at sheetmusicplus.com. https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/pied-beauty-digital-sheet-music/20793049)
Glory be to God for dappled things,
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced - fold, fallow, and plough;
And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him.
