Schola Antiqua: “The Suspended Harp: Sounds of Faith in Medieval Jerusalem”
February 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Developed for the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit “Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People under Heaven,” this program features a mix of ancient sacred songs from the three Abrahamic religions that revere Jerusalem as a holy city. The concert weaves together music from the distinct and complementary traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, starting with an overlapping call of sacred sounds as might be heard in some hours at the Dung Gate, or Aleppo of a former decade, or in cities of North Africa, or Mumbai. The event introduces sonic memories representing echoes of practice that came into and out of focus in the richly intertextual, cross-pollinating “Middle Ages” of Jerusalem.
Highlights from this calendar are included in the weekly E-Notes email newsletter (Tuesdays). Selections are made based on variety of event types and geographic regions.
