Part of the human condition is to be rarely satisfied with farewells, if we are even given the chance to say goodbye at all. For Cherishing features music of loss and remembrance spanning seven centuries. The program centers around Parry’s “Songs of Farewell,” Howells’ “Take Him, Earth, for Cherising,” and other pieces by Ockeghem, Victoria, Convery, and Tavener.
