Cries of Justice - The Song Company

Ancient songs from the Book of Psalms

Ancient songs from the heart in the Book of Psalms sound out across the centuries against oppression and injustice.

3000 years ago, 150 songs were gathered together to become the Hebrew Bible’s Tehillim, the Tanakh or Old Testament’s Book of Psalms.

These Jewish Psalms have been a daily source of personal solace and the inspiration for composers from the Renaissance until today. We sing settings from Josquin des Prez and Robert Parsons to Benjamin Britten and beyond.

This repertoire features alongside commissioned premières by Clare Maclean and Cathy Milliken in 4 concerts in the 2020 Adelaide Festival’s 150 Psalms series.
