The psalms of David have been a source of inspiration to composers for centuries, each text forming a poetic shape the equivalent of a gothic arch, and expressing a rich range of intensely human and timeless emotions. Recorded here for the first time in its complete form, John Rutter's Psalmfest is a collection of nine settings opened up for concert performance with full orchestra while remaining true to the emotional and spiritual sense of the texts. The remaining psalm settings were written for special occasions, including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2008.
