Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible

English composers Thomas Thomkins and Orlando Gibbons, and later Henry Purcell and John Blow, were inspired by the visionary, world-changing translation of the Bible completed under the sponsorship of King James in 1611.
  

Musical settings of biblical verse and other sacred works from the reigns of James I and II are complemented by instrumental fantasies and lively dances by Coperario, Locke, and Purcell. With period strings, organ, and Washington National Cathedral's chamber vocal ensemble Cathedra, under the direction of Michael McCarthy.
