“I hear the real, though far-off hymn,” goes a line from Robert Lowry’s “How Can I Keep from Singing?” Start the New Year by hearing something real, in an intimate setting with Cincinnati’s Vocal Arts Ensemble. These are songs about what matters most, and matters to us all — truth, love, justice, purpose, peace — featuring settings of texts that still resonate today.
