“Every lament is a love song.”

As the leaves fall and the shadows lengthen, join the singers of Convivium for a moving musical meditation on mortality. This candlelit program guides us on a journey through grief, weaving together powerful choral music with the raw poetry of the Hebrew psalms and the ecstatic verses of Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore. Featured composers include John Tavener, Benjamin Britten, Meredith Monk, Melissa Dunphy, John Sheppard, and others.

Hear Convivium sing John Tavener’s Funeral Ikos here.
