Parry de profundis – 2nd movement
Recorded live in St Albans Cathedral on 26th February 2022 by Hertfordshire Chorus and the London Orchestra da Camera under the baton of David Temple. This is the second movement Sustinuit anima mea in verbo ejus.
Parry’s setting of Psalm 130 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord for soprano and twelve part chorus was composed in 1891 for the Three Choirs Festival and rarely performed since then. We were able to bring this neglected masterpiece to a wider audience using a newly reconstructed full score prepared for us by the English Heritage Music Series.
