Celebrated early music vocalist Ruth Cunningham joins Electric Diamond for a distinctive Christmas concert this December at the historic Cabrini Shrine in New York City.
Drawing inspiration from Mother Cabrini’s reflections on Mary and the Nativity, Stuart Diamond collaborates with ambient-music pioneer Don Slepian and the acclaimed early music vocalist Ruth Cunningham. Together, they weave a blend of medieval song, chant, and contemporary improvisation to create peaceful, meditative atmospheres in the candlelit space of The Cabrini Shrine.
