Notes and Editorial Reviews

The psalms, which have been used in worship for at least 2500 years, express a huge spectrum of human emotion and experience, and contain hymns, laments, songs of trust and thanksgiving, pilgrimage and wisdom. The beauty and immediacy of their texts has inspired some of the finest choral music, a vivid selection of which is presented here, on Lincoln Cathedral's latest choir recording. Psalms sung to Anglican chant, accompanied by Lincoln's boundlessly-colourful Willis organ, provide a glimpse of the Cathedral's daily musical offering. The same texts are then presented in settings from across five centuries, from Palestrina to Jonathan Harvey.
