Sing to me

Meet jenifer

Jenifer Thyssen sings soulfully, gently, powerfully, divinely - music which transports and heals, reconnects us and ties us to our past and our future through the musical expressions of human experience written by composers from the 1100's to today.  Honored in her hometown of Austin as Best Classical Singer (by the Austin Critic’s Table Awards) in 2018, 2003, and nominated again for the award in 2007, 2008, and 2012, “Thyssen’s beautiful vocal storytelling” is an Austin staple.  In 2001, Jenifer was given the honor to perform the Texas premiere of Handel’s “Gloria” which was at that time being premiered all over the world.  Jenifer’s work as a founding member of Texas Early Music Project (TEMP) and with other early music ensembles and directors throughout Texas, has been the mainstay of her professional career while raising 7 beautiful children in the Texas Hill Country.  Jenifer appears on TEMP’s first studio recording, “The Bonny Broom and Other Scottish Ballads”, almost all of TEMP’s performance recordings, various performance recordings by La Follia Austin Baroque and is featured on Linda Day’s CD “Love Your Enemies”.  But her children’s favorite recording is her own album, “Dusk is Drawn” – folk lullabies from around the world, featuring lullabies in 7 languages and a track sung in French by her son Ethan when he was an 8 year old boy soprano!  You may hear some of her Boston Early Music Festival concert recordings right above in the music player!  Enjoy!

Sweet dreams

The music from the 12th–14th centuries in France takes us back to days of yore with knights, monks, and poets. Songs of unrequited love and daily challenges are a natural reflection of the society at that time. Special Guests include Peter Maund (percussion), singer and piper Peter Walker (New York).

“This is so amazing. So beautiful. You bring out the nature, the mountains, waterfalls over steap cliffs. A lark singing it's joy of life and a deep blue sky. Spiderwebs sparkling in morning sun. Beautiful green forests and ponies running wild on the moor.”
