For me it was one of the best things in christian music and enabled me to fall in love and sing the Psalms – and in addition inspired me to write my own songs and Psalms to music.
My own Symphony of Psalms is the result of 20 years writing songs to the Psalms.
However I have a dream: To perform a concert, in a Portsmouth Cathedral, some of these psalms set to music. The style is contemporary but with classical instruments and a full choir.
I am hoping to write incidental music between each song creating a unified whole or symphony.
I’m looking for musicians, singers and ideas. Can you help this dream become a reality? I really believe something happens when the church sings the Psalms.
Possible instrumentation: trumpet, flute, violin, cello, piano, drums, male and female choir, electric guitar, bass guitar, guitar.
