Notes and Editorial Reviews

Officially beginning on 25th August 2017, Bernstein’s 99th birthday, and continuing through his 100th year until 25th August, 2019, Bernstein at 100 is the celebration of the 100th birthday of the composer, conductor, educator, musician, cultural ambassador, and humanitarian. To celebrate this world-wide event, the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge and Britten Sinfonia present one of the composer’s most enduring works, Chichester Psalms. The voice occupies a special place in Bernstein’s output, and Chichester Psalms stands as his most popular choral work. It is presented here in the version for choir, organ, percussion and harp, with the exquisite solo for boy treble. Written in 1965, it is an exhilarating invocation of the composer’s Read more hopes for brotherhood and peace. Sentiments which are mirrored by Vaughan Williams’s impassioned Dona nobis pacem, which draws on texts from the Mass, three poems by Walt Whitman, a political speech, and sections of the Bible.
