Regarded as Janet Cardiff’s masterpiece, The Forty Part Motet is a reworking of a 400-year-old choral arrangement, with recorded voices piped through 40 speakers. Visitors, freely passing among the speakers, hear individual singers—as well as the overall symphony. When it was exhibited at the Cloisters, the New York Times observed many people were “moved to tears” by this “transcendent” art.

The installation runs from November 14, 2015 to January 18, 2016. Tickets are free but space is limited and reservations are strongly recommended. Tickets are available online at starting October 15th.

Parks Conservancy members are invited to a special member night and reception on November 17.
