Choral music that glows with divine light; that's what VocalEssence explores this Sunday in its Divine Light concert, examining the relationship between the human and the divine.

John Birge talked with VocalEssence director Philip Brunelle and guest violinist Ruggero Allifranchini from the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, to share a preview of Psalm 151, by John Hoybye.

The concert also includes a new piece by Jake Runestad, A Silence Haunts Me, inspired by Beethoven's life and spirit.
