Event description

Description

Our main title for this year’s conference borrows an image from Philip Larkin’s enigmatic poem “Water.” Although its speaker proposes the construction of a personal religion, he ends by imagining a raised glass of water “Where any-angled light/ Would congregate endlessly.” The image of a liquid prism, which receives, refracts, and harmonizes light, seems a fitting metaphor for the multifaceted mission of the church, as well as the work that poetry does.

The Yale Institute of Sacred Music offers this unique conference for just a nominal registration fee.
