Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, instrumental group American Contemporary Music Ensemble, and the 2014 Grammy Award–winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth join to perform Drone Mass, a new composition inspired by and created for the Met’s magnificent Temple of Dendur. Using texts based on the Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians, this contemporary oratorio fuses the diverse sounds of string quartet, electronics, and vocals to create a memorable experience.
