Songs of Zion

From the rich legacy of psalm settings, our season finale juxtaposes music from the Jewish and Christian traditions.

In convertendo (Psalm 126) from the operatic master Jean-Philippe Rameau infuses the psalmist’s words with flair and passion, while companion pieces by Salamone Rossi and J. S. Bach infuse psalm texts with sonorous counterpoint.
