This year, the Paul T. Plew School of Music at The Master’s University is presenting a new series of programs called “The Psalms Project.” These Sunday afternoon events are opportunities for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and members of the community to hear a short devotional on a given psalm and experience different musical settings of the passage from throughout church history. The first of these gatherings, centered on Psalm 23, included a brand new setting of the “shepherd psalm” composed by TMU music professors and husband and wife, Lauren and Ben Mason.
“There is a welcome resurgence of interest in singing from the Psalter — the inspired songbook we carry with us in our Bibles,” says Dr. Don Hedges, dean of the School of Music. “We trust these programs will be engaging, educational, and in the end, inspirational.”
