Tallis, Bach, Purcell, Monteverdi, Michael van der Aa: throughout the history of Western music, sublime artists have used the Psalms as a starting point for pondering our place in the universe and the state of humankind. The Netherlands Chamber Choir sounds out the texts’ existential yearnings at the New York Society for Ethical Culture.
“Your brightness lights the earth and sky– from Psalm 148 (translation by Norman Fischer)
Raises us up, blares out the note
From your people’s trumpet
An exultant blast for all who struggle with you
And are close at hand”
