In a town like Annapolis, where people live and work among the daily reminders of a colonial past, a group of area musicians has looked a bit further back for their inspiration.Known since 1990 as Ensemble Galilei, they are a group of musicians from Anne Arundel County and the Washington area who have just released their debut album, "Music from the Great Hall: Instrumental music from the ancient Celtic lands," on compact disk and cassette from the independent label Maggie's Music, owned by ensemble member Maggie Sansone of Annapolis.

Without much difficulty, the Christmas season can become a crushing agenda instead of the warm, introspective time of year it's supposed to be.That's why I'm especially glad my wife, Carolyn, treated me to a concert by the Ensemble Galilei at the Great Hall on the St. John's College campus Sunday night.I may be the only Annapolitan not to have attended the Christmas concerts offered by these six gifted female musicians over the past eight years, and I'm tickled that I was at last able to experience the anachronistic sounds of medieval Europe, Colonial America, and modern-day Ireland this ensemble re-creates so beautifully.

It was serendipity that made the all-female instrumental group Ensemble Galilei into what it is today -- all-female.The group, best-known for medieval, Celtic and traditional folk music, had been together since 1990, but in different incarnations, says group member and spokeswoman Carolyn Anderson Surrick."

Christmas music celebrates the story of a man from Galilei. What better name, therefore, for a chamber music group specializing in the performance of music of the Christmas season than Ensemble Galilei?The musicians of this felicitously named group actually do much more than perform Christmas music. The specialty of Ensemble Galilei -- which features Erin Shrader on guitar and fiddle, Sue Richards on Celtic harp, Carolyn Surrick on viola da gamba, Sarah Weiner on oboe and Marcia Diehl on bowed psaltery, recorders and penny whistle -- is actually music of the Renaissance.

THE STATE HOUSE in Annapolis is the oldest state house in continuous use in the country. It also happens to be one of the most beautiful, to these eyes.The State House opens its doors this month with an invitation to the public: Come see your building and a display of contemporary Christmas quilts made by Maryland quilters. The artworks will be on display throughout the building until the end of the month.Quilting has been a Maryland handicraft since the earliest settlers. Once, and still, a frugal way of recycling old cloth into requisite warmth, the process of quilt design and creation became for many people an important form of self-expression.

Annapolis -- Carolyn Anderson Surrick is on a fact-finding mission. The classically trained musician stands alone in the nave of the Cathedral Church of the Incarnation and sings. She listens to the echoes. Her analysis? "The acoustics are just too cool."For Ms. Surrick and the other members of Ensemble Galilei, acoustics are paramount. Balancing the sounds of several ancient instruments -- instruments that were not originally intended to blend -- is the essence of their art. Acoustics can make or break a performance.

In my (relative) maturity I find there are very few people whom I envy. I know there are those who are richer and brighter and funnier, but I also know that I have rewards and joys and some talents that are far beyond my deserts.I do, however, flat-out envy craftspeople, those who go the step beyond, who imagine beautiful possibilities and make them happen -- even when the result is transitory.Here's to the wreath-makers and fashioners of exquisite pocket gardens by the street and those whose tables are the envy of Gourmet's designers.
