The “Sinfonietta of Psalms” is the title that Justin Doyle, the Director of the RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, has given to this evening – alluding to Igor Stravinsky’s famous “Symphony of Psalms”. The programme includes psalm settings by composers such as Heinrich Schütz, William Byrd, Henry Purcell, Claudio Monteverdi and Orlando Gibbons.
