An Evening of Music
From Jerusalem to Cordoba:
A Voyage in Time, Space and Religions Through Chant, Music and Texts
with Catherine Braslavsky and Joseph Rowe


This evening is a celebration of the musical and mystical traditions in and around the Mediterranean, from ancient Judaism and Paganism to Medieval Christianity and Islam. We will hear ancient and original music sung in Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, Occitan and Arabic. The performance includes quotations from Ibn 'Arabi, Yehuda Halevi, Hildegard of Bingen and others, and evokes a rarely-perceived common ground and alternative view of sacred traditions which have so often been in conflict.
