Bernstein, Chichester Psalms
The Good Samaritan Adult Choirs will be joined by the Church Farm School Choir and the Linden Hall School Choir. Each of the school choirs will present their own set of music and then will combine with the Good Samaritan Choir in a performance of the Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein.
The dean of the Chichester Cathedral commissioned Bernstein to write a piece for the 1965 Southern Cathedrals Festival at Chichester Cathedral (England). The work includes texts from Psalms 100 & 108 in the first movement, Psalms 23 & 2 in the second movement and Psalms 130 & 131 in the third movement all sung in the original Hebrew (translations will be provided). The entire program will last about an hour and a quarter. Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
