The art of crafting a carol

first_img’Tis the season for a little night (and late afternoon) music.If you’re in need of some holiday spirit, the Memorial Church may have just what you’re looking for. The annual Christmas Carols Services will be held Sunday at 5 p.m. and Tuesday at 8 p.m. and feature carols both familiar and fresh, including a new work by the church’s composer in residence, Carson Cooman ’04.It’s the 110th year of the much-loved holiday service, and while he hasn’t been composing for quite that long, Cooman has crafted a number of pieces for the time-honored tradition, starting in 2003 when he was a senior at the College. Since taking up his official post at the church in 2006 he has written a new piece just about every year for the ceremony that blends classic carols with contemporary works and has become a cherished event for members of the Harvard community and beyond.Cooman’s latest effort, “A Pilgrimage Carol,” is tied to the church’s exploration of the theme throughout the academic year. Church officials have organized a range of discussions around the topic of pilgrimage and trips to local attractions aimed at examining “how we might move through the world more consciously, attentive to the sacred within and around us, awake to the claims that the journeys of others make on our lives,” notes the church’s website.For his newest Harvard-commissioned piece, Cooman worked with his frequent collaborator, the Welsh-Scottish poet and librettist Euan Tait, whose texts have become his starting point.“Both the sound of the words and the meaning of the words has a significant impact on the music that’s written,” said Cooman. “The text exists first, so the music absolutely comes out of its images. [In this piece] Euan drew on the idea of these groups of animals and people coming to the manger and connecting that to a more general sense of pilgrimage that people might take.”After living with the words for a period of time, the music starts to take shape, Cooman said.“The process is somewhat different with every piece but after spending a lot of time with the text usually I start getting some idea of what the themes will be, how the piece will be structured as a whole … the shape that it will have.”For longtime choir director Edward Jones, Cooman always delivers “a wonderful product.”“He writes so beautifully for choirs and he knows this choir very well,” said Jones, the Gund University Organist and Choirmaster.“And I think in this day and age the theme of pilgrimage and journeys and where we are going is a really important one,” Jones added, “not just for the Harvard community, but for the greater community as well.”“A Pilgrimage Carol”Loved pilgrim lion,You bring me on Your backhome, the eternalplace of Your birth,Your sweet child play,Your laughter and light beauty,Your gaze of all-embracelove on Your parents,quiet, gentle Josephand Mary radiantwith Holy Spirit songsthat made her prayingdance.

Lecture analyzes Celtic Tiger

first_imgSarah L. Townsend, a visiting faculty fellow at the Keough-Naughton Institute, traced in a talk Friday the literary usage of the term “pig” during the Celtic Tiger period in Ireland.Townsend analyzed the Celtic Tiger, a name for the rapid economic growth of the Republic of Ireland in the late 1990s, in the lecture titled “Miracles of Development: From Irish pigs to Celtic Tigers,” which focused particularly on Patrick McCabe’s “The Butcher Boy” and Enda Walsh’s “Disco Pigs.” “The works serve as fascinating barometers of the Celtic Tiger sentiment by capturing the early dizzying promises while simultaneously conveying depression for its excesses, exclusions and violent ends,” she said.These pig-oriented narratives reveal the mental logic of the Celtic Tiger and its aftermath, Townsend said. The Irish works by McCabe and Walsh convey well the transition of Ireland into the Celtic Tiger and the subsequent depression, she said.The authors’ portrayal of characters emphasizes the country’a mentality during the time of transition into the Celtic Tiger economy, Townsend said.“McCabe’s and Walsh’s texts critique the piggish tendencies that development in Ireland caused because of the economic development of the latter 20th century … such as calling out the excesses of Celtic Tiger society,” she said.One example of aligning the transformation of characters to the transformation of the Irish people’s mentality was marking the characters’ development in terms of piggish consumption, Townsend said.“Development of consumer desires [by the characters] mark the emergence of a socialized and mature individual finally able to make and spend like the Celtic Tiger demand,” she said.The characters’ ultimate decline by over-consumption echoes the fate of the Celtic Tiger, which Townsend said transitioned Ireland from the country with the highest standard of living in the world in 2005 to one with a depressed economy by 2010.Tags: Celtic Tiger, Enda Walsh, Ireland, Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, Patrick MaCabe, Sarah L.

First images of 53-year-old Mike Tyson emerges ahead of comeback

first_img The former world champion explained he once started fighting prostitutes while high on drugs, as he was paranoid they wanted to steal from him. He explained to Las Vegas Weekly in 2012 per Daily Mail: “Laying in bed in a hotel room – I try never to be alone, even if it’s a prostitute, a dog. “This is really dark. I am in my hotel suite, I’ve got seven women there, and I have a morphine drip, and I had my cocaine, and I had my (Viagra-like pill) Cialis, I had my marijuana, I had the Hennessy. “And I am at my lowest point because I got paranoid and I thought these women were trying to rob me and set me up. “I started beating them. I was in a dark place. There was a purpose, though, because I didn’t want to give them any more of my soul. “So this is my devil, this is where I am, I am locked up alone. There is nobody there telling me that I’m doing too much. “That is the devil, he won. I kicked them all out. So that was my lowest point. Oh, man. I am just very grateful to be here – my heart should have blown apart.” ‘Iron Mike’ has peppered social media with training clips over the last few weeks but they were all with a shirt on, with many fans speculating how he would look once in the ring. However, a post on Chinese social media site Weibo has shown the Brooklyn native is in unreal condition. Check out the images below.

Tyson slumped to a shock defeat against journeyman fighter Kevin McBride and swiftly retired after the loss. What followed was a spiral into a dark place, as admitted by the man himself. Tyson has stated he was once a cocaine addict and it was in 2009 he realised he had hit ‘rock bottom’.
