St. Paul’s Artist Series presents "A Golden Wire," the New York-based period instrument 
ensemble, performing No Noise nor Silence: Music of the English Restoration.  The concert 
takes place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 305 W. Seventh at Pine St., on Friday, Jan. 31 
at 7:30 p.m. 

Single tickets are $40, $30, $25, students with ID are $10, and can be purchased in advance through the St. Paul’s website, by phon at 423-266-8195 and will also be sold at the door on the night of the concert.
 
A Golden Wire is a period instrument ensemble specializing in music of England and the British 
Isles, combining the Baroque’s most intimate and subtle instruments to bring the past to life.  
Comprised of Parker Ramsay, harp and harpsichord; Arnie Tanimoto, viola da gamba; Kevin 
Payne, theorbo; Sara Tomlin voice, the ensemble’s program No Noise nor Silence: Music of the 
Elizabethan Restoration features music by English and French composers including Henry 
Purcell, Thomas Campion, John Dowland, Alfonso Ferrabosco, and Marin Marais, among others. 
 
Parker Ramsay, co-director of A Golden Wire, notes, “In this concert, our musicians will recreate the musical world of 17th century England featuring the music of Henry Purcell and his contemporaries, as well as their 16th century predecessors.  After the repressive 
Commonwealth era where music and entertainment were banned, the Restoration of the 
British Monarchy under Charles II brought French and Italian influences to the British Isles and 
breathed new life into English music.  Our program weaves a tapestry of music from this era 
incorporating instrumental and vocal works by French and English composers right up to the 
music of Henry Purcell, the greatest composer of the age.  Drawing on our expertise in the area 
of historical performance, we aim not only to charm the listeners but to transport them to 
another place and time.” 
 
Paul Thomas, music director at St.

Paul’s, comments, “We are delighted to present this 
outstanding period instrument ensemble on our Artists Series this season.  The sounds of lute, 
viol, harp and voice will resonate beautifully in our space, and the enchanting music will surely 
captivate our audience.”

In the wake of my Sunday story, which detailed the heroics of Marine Lt.
