Longing for Unity
Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42 is a musical manifestation of humanity’s impulse to search for love and belonging. Contemporary composer Reena Esmail’s This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity yearns for common ground by joining sitar and tabla with a modern western orchestra, juxtaposing words from seven major religious traditions of India to explore how they each approach the topics of unity, harmony, and of being kind to one another.
