Concinnity (noun)
[kuhn-sinuhtee]

“This rare word means ‘elegance or neatness of literary style’. The Merriam Webster dictionary gives an example as ‘a choral work admired for its seamless concinnity of music and dance’. It comes from the Latin ‘concinnus’ meaning skilfully put together – a definition that has translated to this word.”
