Sacred Bridges

£12.00

Signum Classics are proud to release the King’s Singers fifth disc on Signum; Sacred Bridges.

For thousands of years, the biblical Psalter has been the liturgical “heart” of the three main book religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Psalms announce the word of God and, simultaneously, contain the full range of human experience.

Jews, Christians and Muslims sing and listen to the same songs of lament and joy, confessions of sin, hymns of praise and adoration. In this project of the King’s Singers and Sarband, psalm settings by composers from three religions give an example of how psalms can be a source of spirituality, a political instrument, a link between tradition and modernity and, above all, a bridge connecting human beings.

Immaculate blend, perfect tuning and crystal diction … Superb performances across the cultural divide show that great art transcends political differences – The Times

A fascinating, attractive, beautifully performed-album – Gramophone

Perfectly judged and beautifully blended sound – Classic FM Magazine

An intriguing disc, and far more than a curiosity – Early Music Review

A real gift to … music lovers that need a special musical holiday gift – Mid West Record Recap
