This Vocal Arts Ensemble of Ann Arbor concert will feature Heinrich Schutz's majestic motet Das ist mir lieb, a masterwork setting of Psalm 116 that serves as a centerpiece to the program's theme of voices pleading and answering the call. A powerful assortment of psalm and poetic settings will also be included, ranging from the Renaissance to Thea Musgrave in this concert about supplication, silence and consolation.
