A Century of New York Psalms, featuring Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms

An extraordinary evening of choral music by New York composers exploring the mystical psalms of the Old Testament is planned for March, 2013. New works written expressly for this performance will be premiered alongside illustrations by New York artists, bringing to life these ancient poems in one of New York’s most beautiful churches. Following music by Corigliano, Thomson, McFerrin, and Muhly, the program will conclude with Leonard Bernstein’s luminous Chichester Psalms for choir and instruments, sung in Hebrew.
