The neuroscience, theology, history and art behind music and grief

As part of our festival focus on mental health and wellbeing, Tenebrae presents a pre-concert panel exploring the ways in which we use music to express and process grief. Reflecting on the music to be performed in the evening concert, Ian Ritchie (Artistic Director of The Musical Brain and interdisciplinary music curator) will chair a conversation between neurologist Professor Michael Trimble and cultural historian Dr Robert Letellier. Michael’s specialism in the neurological basis of artistic and religious experiences intersects with Robert’s own research in the fields of music and theology, providing fresh insight into how music has always played a part in social rituals and emotional processes relating to loss in its many forms.
