Tapestry The Michigan Festival of Sacred Music brought back the critically-acclaimed Boston-based vocal chamber ensemble Tapestry for the Festival’s fall 2006 “Off-Season” event. Tapestry did a choral residency with Cantus Femina, Western Michigan University’s women’s choir, and performed their own inimitable chamber music, with voices and percussion, as well as works in collaboration with Cantus Femina. Repertoire included works by Hildegard von Bingen, including excerpts from her Ordu Virtutem. There also were works by living composers Patricia Van Ness and Robert Kyr, some specifically written for Tapestry combined antiphonally with women’s chorus.
