Thursday night: sublime and ridiculous

Five links – the first two beautiful, the second two amusing:

– Joy Howard at The Crooked Line on a sublime performance of a Schein motet at Emmanuel Church.

– The Dalai Lama on what he learned from Thomas Merton.

– via Arts Journal, Creature Comforts on “what is Art?”

-via a Penn colleague, an inimitable performance by Nicolas Slonimsky

-and the last, both sublime and ridiculous; again, via Arts Journal
