What has happened in the past can shape the future; sometimes, forgiveness is a radical act. The LAMENTO ensemble is made up of six instrumentalists on harpsichord/organ, chitarrone/ baroque guitar, cello, viola and two violins.
What drives us to hate and hurt each other? What hope is there when our leaders are corrupt? What is the point where victim and perpetrator meet? How do we deal with past wrongs? Can we truly forgive? Does love still have meaning?
These are among the questions posed by LAMENTO, an exploration of Desmond Tutu’s declaration: “I am a prisoner of hope.”
