The response to the premeir performance in Spring of 2010 was so overwhelming that in the Autumn of that same year, Mathes performed the concert again in his home town of Greenwich, Connecticut, this time filming the event in high definition.
Rob Mathes was recognised with an Emmy Award in 2010 for the Best Variety, Music or Comedy Special. He has worked with major musicians worldwide: Sting, The Royal Philharmonic, Matthew Morrison on the TV hit ‘Glee’, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Carly Simon, Elton John, Marc Anthony… you can find out more about this extraordinary man on his website www.robmathes.com
“This concert is an unbelievably rich evening of lyrical music and song, thanks to the work of these incredible artists and Micheal’s words, which are extraordinary; not to mention the Psalms, some of the most beautiful poetry ever written,” noted Mathes. O’Siadhail and Mathes wrote the song cycle to trace a life through the Psalms.
