Symphony of Psalms

Recollection and peace emerge from this programme of sacred music proposed by Philippe Herreweghe. The Symphony of Psalms marks Stravinsky’s return to religious practice and expresses man’s cry of hope and praise to God. As for the Requiem, it invites us to introspection and calm in the face of death.
