Global Transcendence
World Sacred Harmony and Chant

Fall 2014

Hear the musical intersections of the world’s faiths, as we explore mystical, harmonically stunning, and contemplative sacred vocal traditions. From Jerusalem to Athens, Tbilisi to Accra, Rome to Mumbai, be awed by music of Jewish, Hindu, Baha'i, and other traditions. Inspiring music by Allegri, Purcell, and Tallis will connect West to East, while our unusual and inventive combinations of varied liturgical threads will create a sonic quilt like no other.
