THE SPECIALIST’S GUIDE TO…Psalms and music

In their distinctive and unspeakably beautiful 16th-century English translation attributed to Myles Coverdale (still used by the Church of England today), the Psalms proved a rich literary resource for the declamatory verse anthem when it was popular. Gibbons’s response to selected verses from Psalm 39 is extraordinarily honest and imaginative, as is Red Byrd’s very particular ‘historical’ rendering of those words on this unparalleled recording. © 2016 Gramophone
