Composer Hugh McElyea Uses an Ancient Form to Portray Heroism and Sacrifice
Composer Hugh McElyea talks about his work 'Tenebrae: The Passion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer'. This theatrical work uses the ancient service of Tenebrae to tell the story of the last hours of Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer who could have fled Germany during the Nazi regime, but whose faith compelled him to stay and face imprisonment and eventual execution just days before the war ended.
