Composed originally as liturgical music performed in the ancient Israelite temple, the Psalms are the most musical and thus euphonic works in the Bible. Though most poetic in the original Hebrew, the King James translation is the next best choice, having been written with a special ear to retaining the poetic quality of the original. The star of LOGAN'S RUN, CABERET, and THE THREE MUSKETEERS, Michael York brings profound emotion and expression to his reading. His pacing and pronunciation are perfect. The 150 hymns to God are punctuated by short Elizabethan musical pieces. Michael York makes it easy to imagine what it would be like listening to King David recite these words. S.E.S.
