Cardiphonia + Bellwhether Arts have just released a kickstarter fundraising project to raise $$ for a long term exploration of the Psalms of Ascents (with a focus on Holy Week.)
Please consider supporting our project!
This project was initially begun as a Calvin worship grant in 2010 and spiraled into a sprawling endeavor to provide an immersive experience of the Psalms of Ascents. The initial idea was instigated by a little book called “Ascent to the Cross” by Erik Routley that meditates on this little section of psalms through the lens of Holy Week – as these psalms would have likely been sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem for passover.
For the initial project we commissioned RTS-DC president and OT scholar Scott Redd to ponder the Psalms of Ascents as a liturgical guide for Holy Week – PDF
There are over 50 artists involved with this project contributing original songs, devotions, visual art, and liturgical constructions. For more info please visit our kickstarter page.
