This summer’s Death of Classical Angel’s Share series in the catacombs of Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn features performances that explore the nature of time and eternity. The series kicks off June 14-16 with a performance of Princeton-based composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered. Host Rachel Katz will chat with Snider, Angel’s Share curator and Death of Classical Founder and Artistic Director Andrew Ousley, and Gabriel Crouch, director of choral activities at Princeton University, who will lead the Gallicantus vocal ensemble and instrumentalists of Decoda Ensemble.
