SIGNATURE CONCERT OF THE SEASON
Kinnara: The Path of Miracles
Sunday, September 18, 7:00 pm, Sanctuary
6:30 pm Pre-Concert Lecture with Oliver Brett
7:00 pm Kinnara Concert
Spain’s Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is one of the revered “thin places” of the world, a shrine where the border between earth and heaven is felt to disappear. Since the ninth century, pilgrims have followed an ancient route leading from France to the cathedral shrine holding the body of St. James (Santiago) and extending beyond to Finisterre, “the end of the earth” on the western coast of Spain.
British composer Joby Talbot’s a cappella tour-de-force Path of Miracles follows the journey along the Camino between four of the major staging posts on the route as an expression of the individual pilgrim’s experience. The mystical and epic work reflects the physical and spiritual progress of the pilgrim, referring to the multitude of stories of saints, miracles, and traditions associated with the route. It evokes shrines to pilgrim-martyrs, ancient hospices, the pilgrim’s passport, and the symbolic burning of a piece of clothing at Finisterre to symbolize renunciation of the pilgrim’s old life.
