Dr. Persichetti gives us the following program notes:

Psalm for Band is a piece constructed from a single germinating harmonic idea. There are three distinct sections, a sustained chordal mood, a forward moving chorale, followed by a Paean culmination of the materials.

Extensive use is made of separate choirs of instruments supported by thematic rhythms in the tenor and bass drums.
