During the Middle Ages, the cult of Mary was flourishing throughout the entirety of Europe. Veneration of the Virgin Mother became an intrinsic aspect of everyday life. Mary was a link between heaven and earth, an intercessor between humanity and God. She was often compared to a star in the night sky, an omnipresent guide and guardian.

Eya explores the process of Mary as an archetypal link of the human spirit to the celestial realm. Stella Serena includes music of medieval England, France, and Spain of the 12th through the 14th centuries, in songs forged with love for this blessed Lady, venerated as a guiding star.
