"Earth teach me quiet – as the grasses are still with light."

So begins Ēriks’ Earth teach me quiet: a prayer, a meditation, an invitation. All nouns we associate with Returning, as we begin to emerge with this long-awaited family gathering, following a twenty-month exile from our home. A short concert, followed by a long party, of works we love, sung with artists we love, for people we love, marking a time, a passing, of isolation, grief, confusion, hope, and returning.
