One of the most thrilling piece of musical news I received early this year was the beginning of a new project from Psallos. Like the Romans album before it that I absolutely fell in love with, Hebrews will be a musical adaptation of a New Testament letter. A poetic expression of the narrative set to musical stylings and timbres of all sorts, woven together to capture the many layers of the letter’s narrative.
According to the Kickstarter page, the album will consist of over 25 tracks that cover all 13 chapters of Hebrews, continuously flowing smoothly from one song to the next.
Here’s some of the instrumentation:

[UPDATE: As of this writing, they have already received $3,022 from 32 backers in a very short time as they close in on $10,000 for the entire project! Deadline is July 29, 2017.
