The Sacred Bridge: Jews, Christians and Muslims in Medieval Europe
The Boston Camerata (Anne Azema, director) presents The Sacred Bridge, an interfaith celebration unlike any other. Discover with us the common musical roots of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, and the astonishing and beautiful interactions among these traditions. Our program includes elements of Jewish liturgy, Gregorian and Koranic chant, songs and texts of Jewish minstrels, Sephardic folksong, medieval Spanish Cantigas, and Judaeo-Islamic music from the ancient Andalusian tradition. We are joined by Sharq Arabic Music Ensemble.
