Drawing influences from Gregorian chant, Sacred Harp, Bulgarian folk music and their own songwriting, Founders has created a dutifully reverent yet daring homage to Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. The program, titled “Songs for the End of Time,” also features original songs and compositions by Founders illustrating themes of love, the divine and the final apocalypse.
