The Faber Sessions #6, Part II: A Present Mirror in Music Past
October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
TFS [The Faber Sessions] of Fall 2021 invite us to attend to and to “read” a musical literature published, and greatly cherished, some sixty years ago. The point of looking there is for the sake of gaining a redeeming, discerning insight into the cultural and social turbulence of our today. We may find in that particular literature “a mirror” in which more clearly to recognize ourselves, where we stand before God and one another. “Yesterday / all my troubles seemed so far away / Now it looks as though they’re here to stay / Oh, I believe in yesterday.” (The Beatles, the album Help!, released August 1965)
We will “read” the likes of: Bob Dylan (a Nobel Laureate), Arlo Guthrie, Simon and Garfunkel, John Denver, Seals and Crofts, the Beatles, Sam Cooke, the Moody Blues, Cat Stevens, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and others.
“More than ever before in Western society, music is part of our lives, ubiquitously present. Whether we love it or ignore it, play it or shut it out, revel in it or resent it, it is there. Yet many of us rarely if ever stop to think about what music is, how it works, what it might be doing to us, and what we might be doing with it.” [Begbie, Jeremy S.. Resounding Truth: Christian Wisdom in the World of Music (Engaging Culture) (p. 13). Baker Book Group – A. Kindle Edition.]
Unlike the Faber Sessions 1-5, this sixth one will happen once a month (rather than for two, or three or more weeks in a row), and on those Mondays from 6 PM to 7:30 PM … and always presented in your own homes (via Zoom).
