This fall, Clerestory invites you to Night Draws Near, an exploration of life, death, and mysticism featuring music inspired by celebrations that are close in time and in spirit: Halloween, All Souls' Day, and El Dia de los Muertos. The passage of the soul from this life to the next has inspired all manner of musical treatments, from the profundity of John Tavener's "Funeral Ikos," to the eeriness of Peter Warlock's "The Shrouding of the Duchess of Malfi," to the wackiness of Jaakko Mantyjarvi's "Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble."
