Livestream Musical Prayer in the Cathedral
Darrell J. Jordan, baritone
Samuel Libra, piano
Antonin Dvořák: Biblical Songs
Musical Prayer in the Cathedral continues each Friday from 6:30-7:00pm PDT. On September 18,
Cathedral cantor and Cathedral Choir section leader Darrell J. Jordan teams up with Samuel Libra
on piano in the Biblical Songs of Romantic-era Czech composer Antonin Dvořák. The ten songs in the
cycle have texts from the Book of Psalms that the composer originally set in his native language
from the Bible of Kralice, the first Czech translation of the Bible, published around 1600. The
songs were first published in Czech, German, and English in 1895 and have gone on to be some of
Dvořák's most beloved vocal works.
