Port Townsend Presents Letitia Berlin—By the Rivers of Babylon: Super Flumina Babylonis
July 31 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT$21 – $25
Psalm 137, “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion”, expresses the yearnings of the Jewish people during their Babylonian exile. This text, so universal in its anguish, has been set by numerous composers for centuries, up to the 20th century with the famous Reggae version by the Melodians. We will explore versions by Lasso, Palestrina, and Sweelinck.
Upper-Intermediate to advanced recorders, viols and singers welcome.
