Work Overview

There are two versions of the Three Psalms. 1. For solo voice and piano. 2. For solo voice, flute, harp and cello.

I very much enjoyed writing this work in which I set psalms I consider particularly significant. In setting the words I thought of these psalms as they may have been expressed when first created...that is with just one solo voice expressing a personal outpouring of prayer and praise.
