In 2017 the Netherlands Chamber Choir will celebrate its 80th anniversary with the project 150 Psalms. All 150 psalms will be performed. From 150 different composers, representing 1000 years of choral music.

The Psalms portray things on a human scale. This is not the word of God being poured out over man, but the voice of man who is wrestling with life's big questions. Both Christians and Jews have found inspiration and hope in the Psalms, and the Koran also refers to them as holy scripture. The themes found in the Psalms are equally universal: loss, compassion, consolation and hope. Today we see refugees searching for a safe haven, leaders who abuse their power, people who place fear above courage, or courage above fear. Topical themes, for thousands of years already. 150 Psalms regards the Psalms as a mirror of society: great themes from 3,000 years ago are still relevant today.
