When we hold up the Stabat Mater text—an 800-year-old poem picturing Mary weeping at the foot of Christ’s cross—what do we see reflected back? Are there still people who die unjustly at the hands of those in power? Are there still mothers weeping at the death of their sons?
Join i Coristi to juxtapose Lenten texts and music, from Gesualdo to Poulenc, with Joel Thompson’s Seven Last Words of the Unarmed. In this powerful piece, experience the last words of seven African-American men killed by police and explore the invitation to take up the challenge posed by the ancient Stabat Mater text: Let me stand by the cross with you. Let me mourn with you.
Content warning: this concert contains music that references violence, and may be an intense experience for some listeners.
