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. You can also read more about the creation of the Psalms Project…
‘The Psalms Project has developed well beyond what I initially imagined and I’m thrilled by the new direction the music is taking, in exploring the changing emotions of the Psalms.’ — Steven Faux
You Are (Volume IV)
The fourth album of The Psalms Project, You Are, is a collaboration between Steven and Clem Faux. It takes 14 of the songs from the Psalms and with input from stunning vocalists and musicians, marries them to the language of popular folk music.
In a Clear Voice (Volume III)
Featuring music by renowned orchestra Bath Philharmonia and vocals by acclaimed chamber choir Bath Camerata, this part of the journey through the Psalms uses a classical style and the musical language of feature films to explore the challenging and inspiring words in the songs from the Bible.
Do Not Be Far
This album features original songs and new versions of old tracks, rerecorded with new singers, instrumentalists and arrangements to create an alternative style, which moves away from classical music and gets to grips with the life and soul of the modern city.
Volumes 1 and 2
Orchestral parts are performed by the COOL Orchestra (Chamber Orchestra of London) in Abbey Road Studio 2, London. Orchestration and conducting is by Alastair King, orchestrator and conductor on British TV’s Downton Abbey. Singers and instrumental soloists were recorded in Bath, England.
The Psalms Cantata
Bath’s prestigious county youth choir, Cantilena, recorded their own version of The Psalms Project music.
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
