JJJJJerome Ellis: THREE PSALMS

JJJJJerome Ellis: THREE PSALMS

“Equal parts melancholy, desirous, longing, [and] holy…” -Howard Fishman, ARTFORUM

VIRTUAL EVENT

TWO PSALMS was filmed in Ellis' apartment on May 18, 2018 and features musicians Catherine Brookman, Starr Busby, Haruna Lee, James Harrison Monaco, Ronald Peet, and Shu Wang. The piece's three movements are settings of Psalm 42 and Psalm 23 from the Hebrew Bible, in both English and Latin translations, with spoken interludes. During the evening, REDCAT will also present a new commissioned psalm setting, as Ellis continues his ongoing contemplation of devotion, yearning, and uncertainty.
