Heaven and Earth: A Song of Creation

Heaven and Earth: A Song of Creation

A musical meditation on Psalm 103 (“Bless the Lord, O my soul”), the Orthodox Vesperal Psalm, and a reflection on God’s glory revealed in creation.

The program premieres a new setting of Psalm 103 by six Orthodox composers, including a double-choir motet by the late Richard Toensing, sung in English with the traditional Orthodox refrains. John Michael Boyer, composer and Cappella Romana associate music director, conducts.

Heaven and Earth is a collaboration of Cappella Romana and the St. John of Damascus Society. Learn more about the Psalm 103 Project

FREE pre-concert talk and discussion with John Michael Boyer (Cappella Romana) and Richard Barrett (Psalm 103 Project) 1 hour prior to each performance.
