Artists’ Vocal Ensemble (AVE)  (Also Monday May 14, 2012 in San Francisco)
“Opus Ultimum”  Artists’ Vocal Ensemble (AVE) is proud to present its final concert set of the season, “Opus Ultimum,” or “last works.” In this program, AVE looks at the final musical statement of three composers: 1. Schütz’s sublimely beautiful Schwanengesang (“Swan Song”) of Psalm 119 and the German Magnificat.  2.  di Lasso’s beguiling setting of “Lagrime di San Pietro” (“The tears of St. Peter”) and 3. Herbert Howells Antiphon.  The text, “Let all the world in every corner sing,” is a fitting conclusion to the AVE season.
