Asteria’s European Diary
Since 2007, Asteria has spent several months in Europe every year searching through the archives of some of the great libraries of Europe. There is nothing like living in the very places where those who composed and sang this music lived, and each year we soak it into our bones. Follow us on our journey and enjoy this beautiful adventure with us!
