The premiere of Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms was conducted by John Birch, later organist at the Temple Church. Bernstein referred to it as “my youngest child, old fashioned and sweet”. This reflects its accessible and exciting nature but underplays the momentous role it has played ever since as the only mainstream choral work to be sung in Hebrew. This special event, heralding Passover, will include Jewish traditional music and readings by Rabbi Helen Freeman.
