The Psalms of David, sometimes referred to as the hymn-book of the bible, have inspired composers writing for the church through the ages. The vivid, poetical nature of the texts, arousing the full gamut of human emotions, has stimulated the composition of many great sacred works in Western music.

The Choir of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, directed by Colm Carey, was established in 1966 to lead and enrich both worship and liturgy in the two historic chapels within HM Tower of London.

The Choir is one of Britain's leading chapel choirs and occupies a place at the heart of the nation's royal heritage. Formed of ten professional singers - who also perform regularly with distinguished consorts and opera companies in the UK and abroad - the choir continues the tradition of musical excellence central to the English Royal Court.

Colm Carey has been Master of Music of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, since 2004. Andrew Arthur (organ) enjoys a varied career as conductor, keyboard player and teacher, all three of which disciplines he combines within his principle position as Director of Music at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
