Susannah and the elders, Belshazzar’s feast, the burning fiery furnace – all the meatiest Old Testament stories are here. The King James version provides dignity and rhythm for this 1962 mix of dramatic narration, choral motets, and Jackson’s visionary organ music. A well-deserved revival. Janet Banks
