As suggested by its title, this work (written in 2012) aims to be a musical reflection and a magnification of the biblical word. Music here is born quite naturally from the sonorities of the chosen texts, sung in German (in Martin Luther’s translation). Although the musical language is very different, the spirit which originated the work is quite the same that which already inspired Heinrich Schütz (the title Sinfonia Sacra ex- pressly pays tribute to his Symphoniae Sacrae). The choir has the pro- minent role right through. Organ and percussion (timpani, bass drum, cymbals, gong, tamtam) create a colourful and moving sonorous back- ground, extatic or mysterious, grandiose or bare.

The 1st movement sets in music the 121st Psalm : its progress evokes the profile of a moun- tain.

The 2nd is build on an excerpt from the 1st Epistle of Peter which strikingly emphasizes the contrast between the vanity of human life and the transcendent eternity of God.

The last movement is build on the 150th Psalm : here, praise successively takes jubilant or incantatory accents, and finally deeply contemplative.
