Psalmody

Psalmody was founded in 1996 specially for the first recording of Georgian Christmas music, While shepherds watched (Hyperion CDA66924). It has since made three more recordings for Hyperion, has appeared in York and Edinburgh and made a live BBC broadcast that was heard all over the European Broadcasting Union. It is the resident choir for the Suffolk Villages Festival, and recently gave the first modern performance of the early version of Bach’s St Matthew Passion.
