for tenor solo, SATB, and orchestra
The musical language communicates the human intensity of the psalms from the Psalms of David. The first movement is a quiet, mesmeric setting of 'The Lord is my shepherd' followed by a particularly affecting middle movement in which the solo tenor makes an impassioned plea for help. The final movement is a joyful setting of Psalm 138, 'I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord'.
