Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs

About this event

‘Psalms’, is a book of the Old Testament made up of sacred poems meant to be sung, and many composers across the centuries have set these texts. We will sing music from the Renaissance via Monteverdi, Purcell and Parry through to contemporary composers Cecilia McDowall and Will Todd.

Alongside the Psalm settings we’ll perform arrangements of Spirituals by composers such as Undine Smith Moore, Moses Hogan and Roland Carter. These songs would have been sung by African American enslaved people, describing their suffering, longing and religious passion.

The music will be moving, beautiful and uplifting and we very much look forward to seeing you there!
