Description:

The book of Psalms is a versatile collection of Hebrew poetry that addresses the complexity of our lives: providing words of comfort in distress, giving voice to our adoration, validating our feelings of anger and lament.  Composers through the ages have used these verses from scripture to create beautiful and stirring choral works.  We present a sampling of these sacred songs, demonstrating the variety and musical artistry that these words have inspired.
