Difficulty Level: E


Drawing from Psalm 121, this setting begins with two musically similar but different unison verses, and continues with an independent choral third verse and then entirely new music for the final verse that begins with a canonic treatment, ending with a final choral phrase. The musical treatment is well tailored to the text.
