A new Biblical Oratorio for soloists, chorus and orchestra
Composed in 2007 by David Perkins with Libretto using only modern biblical language complied and edited by Derek Wensley, Re:Creation was premiered at St John's, Smith Square, London in 2009. Re:Creation retells Salvation history in five parts : God’s Creativity released…recognised…resisted…restored…renewed. To the original 100 minute version, has been added a 60 minute version to give the alternative possibility of creating a concert programme using extracts from earlier Biblical (King James) works. These options can enable local churches, choral groups, schools, colleges and orchestras to combine to put on concerts celebrating the English Bible through traditional and contemporary choral music.

The biblical psalms have preoccupied composers and song writers for millennia. They have been the primary source for the worship traditions of both Judaism and Christianity going right back to ancient times. With their unique acoustic, multi-ethnic sound Sons of Korah have achieved an intriguing re-creation of the musical drama of the psalms. In their dynamic live performances Sons of Korah take their audiences on a musical journey deep into the historical narrative and spiritual drama of this ancient songbook. From lamentation to songs of jubilant praise, from battle cry to benediction, from exclamation of awe and wonder to reflections of tranquillity and perfect wisdom, Sons of Korah provide a captivating portrait of the world and experience of the psalms.
