In this meditation, we have paired Eric Odum’s poem “In the storm” with Marin Marais’ “Tombeau de M. de St. Colombe,” an intense and deeply personal work. “Tombeau,” means tomb in French, and the music is a tribute by Marais to his former teacher and mentor M. de St. Colombe. Though the music is extremely intimate – performed by just viola da gamba and harpsichord – the emotions portrayed are almost operatic in their extremes. The music’s emotions – from reflection to sadness and even occasional violence – are all echoed in Odum’s poem.

LD Music Meditations combines poetry and music to bring soul-soothing and life-affirming art into your day.

Featuring classic and contemporary poetry by Northeast Ohio writers along with curated performances from Les Délices live-performance archives, each episode concludes with prompts for mindfulness or guided listening.
