Cappella Clausura: Eve and Adam

  • Emmanuel Church, Lindsay Chapel 15 Newbury Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

Rising MIT composer Elena Ruehr’s “Eve,” composed in 2014, takes its familiar text from Genesis, but rather than the traditional retelling, poses an honest question: was gaining knowledge of good and evil such a terrible thing? “In a sense,” the composer writes, “[Eve] is choosing light over darkness, sight over blindness. It’s an astonishing idea.” Paired with Arvo Pärt’s “Adam’s Lament”.
