Even in times of trial, the Psalms provide joyful poems of celebration. The Netherlands Chamber Choir performs euphoric settings by Poulenc and Purcell, among others.
“Lift your voices in song and beat the drum,– from Psalm 81:3–4 (translation by Robert Alter)
the lyre is sweet with the lute.
Blast the ram’s horn on the new moon,
when the moon starts to wax, for our festival day.”
