SNEMF 24 presented music from Vienna to medieval city gates, from the power of love to delight in the wild woods: dances, lullabies, music for the table, and unaccompanied Bach suites, with concerts in the historic Old Church, the new church, the acoustically-beautiful Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel, and the historic Abney Park chapel.
