The words of the psalms, covering praise, prayer, reflection and lamentation have inspired composers through the ages. Our programme presents three 20th-century works which are contrasting in style. Elgar's Great is the Lord has an Edwardian splendour; Rutter's Psalmfest is full of variety, comprising movements written over a span of 20 years; Bernstein's Chichester Psalms (sung in Hebrew) is captivating with its colourful accompaniment of organ, harp and percussion.
