Episode 79: The Bitter Sea
12 September 2021 | The Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary | Menlo Park, Calif.
On this night walk, amidst the music of crickets and frogs and the prowling of foxes and other creatures best left unnamed, we talk about the long histories of Galadriel and Celeborn, and the meaning of the name of Mary. Plus, what do “the fairest daughter of the Eldar” and “the fairest of our race” have in common? (Less than some scholars would have you believe, but more than meets the eye!)
Opening music: “Ave maris stella,” composed by Josquin des Prez, sung by the St. Bartholomew’s Schola, dir. Shannon Gallier, Atlanta, GA, 2014. All rights reserved.
