Bible Narrations by Karen Lak

Texts are taken from the King James Version of the Bible. All music performances are just as the conductors and orchestras recorded them. These are not meant as background music, but they will sound just as they have been performed with the full force of the excellent interpretations of the composers’ works and the conductors and musicians’ artistry. The titles of the narrations are chosen by Karen Lak, and are descriptive of the content of the texts. More symphonies with Scripture narrations will be posted as they are completed.


All narrations are spoken by Karen Lak from the KJV version of the Bible.
