Dante’s masterpiece, “The Divine Comedy” is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. During this interdisciplinary event, we will learn about the music of Dante’s Purgatory, looking at the psalms and hymns that Dante cites and why they are significant within the context of the poem. Somerville choir will sing settings of these texts to music by composers including MacMillan, Howells, and Tallis. Join us to learn about this celebrated Italian poet, and the importance of music for the structure, tone, and significance of his work.
