As a combined piece, Angelus and University Chorale will be performing the brand new SATB arrangement of this text by Elaine Hagenberg. Additionally, Angelus will be performing eight pieces that connect with this broad theme through text.  The idea being that despite our earthly trials, shadows, and pain, we are not alone in this world and beyond.
