Soprano Maria Clark and pianist Maria Thompson Corley navigate intense emotion, scars of suffering, and religious passion through hymns, spirituals, and gospel tunes on their latest album, "Soul Sanctuary". They both join Garrett (1:09:00) to discuss the album, the importance of the spiritual, and the cultural narratives that are drawn from this form of Black classical music. Garrett and Scott kick off the show with a nod to the tradition of Jewish music and discuss music that bridges the east and west, a racial slurs in the concert hall, and building cross-cultural unity through the theater. This, lots of great music, and more!
