Using the Christian tradition it is possible to view death from a perspective that encourages contemplation prior to the event rather than after, forward-looking rather than back. In this way, death is viewed with a sense of comfort and release; a long awaited paradise. The Latin antiphon of 750AD ‘Media vita in morte sumus’ (in the midst of life we are in death) resonates with this idea and is explored in our first concert of the year. Help us unravel the meaning behind this enigmatic phrase through music such as Harris’s Faire is the Heaven, Stanford’s Justorum animae and other works by Poulenc, Brahms, Purcell, Rheinberger and more.
