The shock of losing someone is devastating. How do we cope with that loss? We mourn. Ellen Kushner looks at the rituals, the language, and most of all the music that has helped people all over the world to express their loss, and to move from hurting to healing.  We'll hear a Latin Requiem and a jazz solo, Irish keening and Gypsy flamenco, African harping and an Albanian lament, as well as modern poetry and the stories of people who have recently survived a difficult loss.
