The Program

Perhaps there is no more recognizable psalm text than “The Lord is my shepherd.” Twentieth-century Danish composer Carl Nielsen gives this psalm new life, and a collection of early music explores trust in that which is greater than the self—all sung by the Tallis Scholars at Union Seminary’s James Memorial Chapel.

“And I will lie down
To sleep
With a deep peace
For in you
I find my completion”
– from Psalm 4 (translation by Norman Fischer)
