Rosa Mystica Therese Schroeder-Sheker casts an almost mystical spell with
the power of insight and understatement as she brings rich tapestries of
medieval music to life. As one fascinated listener confessed, "The
strongest impression I had was one of whispers that almost seemed to shout
into my consciousness."
Rosa Mystica showcases Schroeder-Sheker"s uniquely expressive gift for
subtlety, as well as her acuity, lyricism, and potent musical virtuosity.
The poignant purity of her soprano voice, and the warmth of her harp
accompaniments imbue the ancient Irish, Rumanian, Israeli, and Sephardic
melodies with a beauty and clarity that transcends time. At the hands of
this accomplished artist, these songs of love, passion, devotion, spiritual
awakening, and the pain of rejection become as relevant to modern listeners
as they were hundreds of years ago. Similarly, her original composition,
For the Roses, draws inspiration from the past to shed light on how 20th
century women mourn the loss of love and begin to heal in time.
