Psalms 1: Mortal Leadership, Divine Guidance
Encompassing nearly one thousand years of musical settings by 150 different composers, this unique collaboration by four world-renowned choirs explores the universal and transcendental themes of the Book of Psalms. From medieval chant to new commissions by David Lang and Nico Muhly, the 150 psalms are spread out over twelve concerts, each with a unifying theme, such as justice, suffering, power, and powerlessness. The project travels to The Utrecht Early Music Festival in the Netherlands in early September, and back to New York in November as part of the White Light Festival presented by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
