Jewish custom ascribes great significance to honoring the memory of the deceased. And so those who take part in mourning stay at home for a week of “sitting shiva,” during which period they are visited, cared for, and comforted by members of the community as they commemorate the dead. In Tante Hänsi (2006), the Swiss composer Mela Meierhans addressed herself to Christian folk rituals of mourning in her homeland and, in Rithaa (2010), to Islamic traditions. Now, in Shiva for Anne, the concluding third part of her Afterlife Trilogy, she explores Judaism – while also commemorating the British poet Anne Blonstein, who was originally to have written the libretto but who died in 2011.
