Emily Jane Brontë was born on a day like today and 197 years after that she continues to impress, amaze and interest readers all over the world. Her intriguing personality, her mastery of poetry and prose make her a very prominent figure in 2015. Her only novel, Wuthering Heights, fascinates readers and gains one new adaptation after another, thereby living endless new lives and touching different lives.

We still wonder what Emily- the so-called sphinx of English literature would make of all that. We do, however, know that we are very happy for her.

This is the premiere performance of Ola Gjeilo's "No Coward Soul is Mine." (2011).
This piece was commissioned by the Mercersburg chorus for their 35th anniversary.
