Luca Massaglia (b. 1975) — Psalm LXII, op. 9 (2018) for organ

The composer intended this piece as a commentary on the first six verses of Psalm 62.

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

Italian organist Luca Massaglia (b. 1975) was born in Turin and was educated there at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory. Since 2001 he has been organist at the Madonna degli Angeli Sanctuary. In 2010, Massaglia was artistic director of the Note per la Sindone (Notes for the Holy Shroud) organ festival in Turin. As a concert organist, Massaglia has toured very extensively internationally. From 2009–12 he was also a member of a saxophone and organ duo (Duo Ricercare) which likewise toured internationally and also recorded a CD for Elegia Records. He is currently also a collaborative artist with many musicians including violinist Marco Casazza, organist Paolo Maria Guardini, and mezzo-soprano Margit Lykke Christensen, among others. In 2017, he formed the Russian-Italian Organ Duo with his wife, Elena Kalashnikova.
