Notes & Reviews:

The Psalms of David, sometimes referred to as the hymn-book of the bible, have inspired composers writing for the church through the ages. The Choir of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, directed by Colm Carey, was established in 1966 to lead and enrich both worship and liturgy in the two historic chapels within HM Tower of London. This new CD creates a kaleidoscopic snapshot of music inspired by the Psalms, giving captivating insight into the variety of repertoire sung by the choir on a weekly basis.
