Symphonies of Psalms February 9

Symphonies of Psalms, February 9

Spanning four centuries of music, this program offers a collection of the astonishing variety of responses that the Psalms of David have inspired in composers over the years: Psalm 150 by Heinrich Schütz, the greatest of Bach’s German predecessors; a setting of Psalm 84 by Caroline Shaw, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Music; Igor Stravinsky’s deeply spiritual Symphony of Psalms; Antonín Dvořák’s thrilling setting of the 149th psalm; Lili Boulanger’s restless Psalm 129; and a jubilant Psalm 46 by our own music director, William White.
