David Lang: the national anthems
Caroline Shaw: To the Hands
Caroline’s To the Hands, from her 2016 Seven Responses study on displacement and immigration, is balanced with David’s meditation on the nature of national anthems: “I had the idea that if I looked carefully at every national anthem I might be able to identify something that everyone in the world could agree on….Hiding in every national anthem is the recognition that we are insecure about our freedoms, that freedom is fragile, and delicate, and easy to lose."
Ted Hearne: What It Might Say
Written by Ted for the Crossing to commemorate the April 2014 passing of Jeff Dinsmore, co-founder of The Crossing. It offers a look at what a baby might say to its mother, relating it’s perspective of their relationship. And in doing so, it describes how we grapple with the loss of that loved one.
