Psalms Project

A contemporary journey through the vivid landscape of the Psalms, told in the musical language of feature films. We are drawn into a world of joy and praise, danger and abandonment and, finally, restoration and affirmation.

The music is available on CD, and there have been several successful live concerts.

Responses to The Psalms Project

‘I want to commend ‘The Psalms Project’, composed by Steven Faux. In twelve contemporary pieces of music it takes you on an extraordinary journey through some of the first forty Psalms. As I listened to the opening performance in St. Michael’s Bath, I found myself deeply moved. Just for a little while I realised that I had stepped aside and paid attention once again to the mystery and miracle of God. I had been refreshed and renewed!’
– Rt Revd Peter Maurice, Bishop of Taunton

‘Steven Faux’s musical mix of style and genre is most imaginative. What an uplifting experience!’
– Jane Jones, Classic FM radio presenter
