PSALMS FOR THE SPIRIT

Psalms have long played a central part in Christian worship, assuming even greater importance in England following the Protestant Reformation. Psalms for the Spirit offers a selection of psalm settings written largely for the Anglican liturgy, with harmonized chants and more elaborate compositions, ranging from the work of Mozart's pupil Thomas Attwood to the contemporary.
