In the midst of life – June 2007

The closing concerts of Clerestory’s inaugural season confront the reality that to be human is to be mortal.  In the hands of music, the sadness, peace, or fear of the unknown surrounding the end of life become easier to confront.  Sacred music like the rarely performed Sermisy Requiem are paired along secular meditations on mortality by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Taverner, and Crabtree.  In this early summer – a time of the fullness of life – please enjoy sharing this music with us which has the power to inspire peace when it is needed most.
