Even those who do not deem themselves as particularly pious wouldn’t hesitate to fall under the captivating beguilement of David Albracht’s masterpiece of a composition which was inspired by the text of Psalm 115 (KJV). To make the composition come to life David enlisted the infamously, deftly talented London Symphony Orchestra and the London Voices. The fluid composition moved seamlessly under the conduction of Paul Ayres to create a concordantly vibrant orchestral offering of momentous aural alchemy. The flurrying instrumentals never hesitated for a moment as the arrangements exuded pure untainted emotion.
Classical music may have seen a revival as of late thanks to composers such as Ramin Djawadi, yet Dallas, Texas based artist David Albracht may be the contemporary visionary to bring popular attention back to the majesty of Contemporary Christian Classical music.
You can discover the delights captured in the momentously empyreal composition for yourself by heading over to SoundCloud and checking out David Albracht’s prodigal version of Psalm 115, Not unto us, O Lord which was recorded at Abbey Road, London in May 2018.
