We spread our wings to encompass Orthodox, Protestant, Catholic and Jewish psalm settings, on a journey from Finland to Spain, via Lithuania, Russia, Hungary, Italy and France. Highlights include movements from the ‘All-Night Vigils’ by Rachmaninoff and Rautavaara, Monteverdi’s ‘Beatus Vir’ and the unique Hebrew settings by his colleague Salomone Rossi. And we are proud to give the first performances of the winning entries from our Composition Competition.
