"...Psalm 90 in its setting by Charles Ives is its greatest setting ever. In this gorgeously-sung version...let the music get to you: it is perfectly suited to the words. When the choir sings, "And let the beauty of the Lord our God be on us," see if you don't melt into tears as I do. Not much in music is this beautiful. ...the choral sound is rich and full, often quite thrilling."
