Album Notes
Eya explores this connection of the human spirit to the celestial realm through songs and hymns devoted to the Virgin. Stella Serena includes music of medieval England, France, and Spain of the 12th through the 14th centuries, observing some of the ways in which these generations sought to connect their world with the divine above.


Eya is an award-winning vocal ensemble based in Washington, DC specializing in the interpretation of medieval music for women’s voices. Launched in 2010, Eya has established its place in the Washington, DC community as an early music ensemble of impeccable vocal quality, deep spirit, and smarts.

Directed by Allison Mondel, Eya presents concert programs that interweave diverse repertories of the 12th through 15th centuries, from Hildegard von Bingen to Notre Dame to the flyleaves of early English manuscripts and beyond. Through this lens, these programs seek to tell a story that forges new points of connection between contemporary audiences and medieval repertoire, underlining our common humanity with these early poets and composers.

Our performers are some of the finest young early music specialists in the area and appear regularly with the Washington Bach Consort, the National Cathedral, Apollo's Fire, the Folger Consort, Seraphic Fire, and many more. Eya has performed at a variety of venues thus far, notably repeat performances at Dumbarton Oaks, Harvard University for the opening of special exhibition "Cross References," the Boston Early Music Festival Fringe, Georgetown University, and The College of William and Mary, among others.

Audiences have praised the ensemble for its vocal beauty, fascinating and accessible programming, fresh and inspired interpretations, and musicianship of the highest standard. Most recently, Eya is the proud recipient of the 2013 Greater DC Choral Excellence Award for Best Specialty Group: Early Music.

Eya (pronounced “EH-yah”) is a Latin exclamation of joy.
