Ancient songs from the heart in the Book of Psalms sound out across the centuries against oppression and injustice
3000 years ago, 150 songs were gathered together to become the Hebrew Bible’s Tehillim, the Tanakh or Old Testament’s Book of Psalms. These Jewish Psalms have been a daily source of personal solace and the inspiration for composers from the Renaissance until today. We sing settings from Josquin des Prez and Robert Parsons to Benjamin Britten and beyond. This repertoire features alongside commissioned premières by Clare Maclean and Cathy Milliken in four concerts in the 2020 Adelaide Festival’s 150 Psalms series.

Program includes:
King David(?) שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת (Psalm 120) | Robert White Exaudiat te, Dominus (Psalm 20) | Sigismondo d’India Timor et tremor (Psalm 55) | Benjamin Britten Deus in adjutorium meum (Psalm 70) | Nicolas Gombert Confitebimur tibi (Psalm 75) | Felix Draeseke Der Herr ist König (Psalm 93) | William Byrd Domine secundum multitudinem (Psalm 94)
