Praise ye the Lord

author of text
Psalm 148

Praise ye the Lord (1990) sets Psalm 148, one of the most pictorial sections of the Psalter. Harvey had used the same text in Lauds (for two choirs and cello) just three years earlier. The colouristic organ writing shows the influence of Messiaen. The anthem is an exuberant paean of joy, painted in the brightest colours, though even here the composer falls to his knees at the end, in awe at the wonder of Creation.
