Billboard Classical Music chart-toppers Anonymous 4 make an appearance at St. Mark's Episcopal Church this Sunday, as part of the downtown church's Sacred Sounds Concert Series. The award-winning female vocal quartet is perhaps the best known interpreter of early medieval sacred music in the world today, selling over a million and a half albums globally; no small feat for a scholarly group of singers specializing in a niche musical genre. 

"Anonymous 4...know how to present a song and how to inflect and otherwise articulate its meaning to an audience. With their passionate, romantic themes these ballate, as the form was known, invite first rate interpreters to show their best stuff, and that's what we get here...the sound is ideal..." ~ Classics Today

Sunday's concert is entitled "Sisters in Spirit: Sacred Song from Medieval Spain to Early America," extending their original focus on European chant and polyphony into traditional colonial ballads as well. The final performance of the year in St. Mark's series, the event is free and open to the public.
