For every parent, each child that is birthed is perfect and beautiful. A miracle, destined for greatness.
What then is it for a parent to lose that child, to see him or her hungry, tortured or even killed? This is what is happening daily in Syria, Uganda, Somali, and parts of the Americas.
Mary’s Lament: Christ Crucified views such moments through music and poetry, finding no answers but resilience and strength.
Join the St John’s choir for a very special evening of music, poetry and narration. Music includes work by Pergolesi, Barber, Lauridsen, Widor, Floyd, Stainer and Handel. Narration and poetry from Rilke, Oliver, Levertov, Macleish and Joan Potter.
Saturday 20 February at 7:30 pm.
