The Psalms of David are arguably the portion of the Old Testament that has been enfolded most completely within the Christian tradition and its liturgies. Their messages of strife and joy, prayer and praise, resonate strong and loud alongside the teachings of Jesus, and find special expression in musical settings. This album is an exploration of all these themes, as interpretated by composers over the course of four and half centuries - with music by Allegri, Bernstein, Byrd, Parry, Purcell and Wesley.

The Temple Church is one of the most historic and beautiful churches in London. Situated between Fleet Street and the Thames Embankment, its recorded musical history extends back to its resoration in 1841, although a church has stood on the site for over 800 years. This is Signum’s second album with the choir, following 2010’s release of ’The Majesty of Thy Glory" (SIG 225)


 

"... a good programme, is well sung, and worth buying ..."

CB - Early Music Review - April 2012


"Such enterprising and polished music-making deserves widespread currency. The engineering and editing are faultless, the booklet comprehensive and informative. manychoirs (and organists) could learn much from this jubilant release, which prooves that the Temple Church Choir is among the very best. Strongly recommened."
