John Muehleisen’s poignant and moving Pietà expresses how love, compassion, and mercy may become the faithful human response to tragedy and injustice. This deep, meaningful work addresses, in concentric circles, the sorrow and pain of mothers who lose their sons — the innermost being the death of Mary’s son, Jesus; next, the loss of a World War I soldier; and the outermost, our losses today and the importance of healing and forgiveness in this divided world.
Lindsay Kesselman and Brian Giebler return as featured soloists as sounding light offers the Michigan and Ohio premieres of this inspired and important work.
