Description:

** GIA no longer publishes nor sponsors the work of Paul A. Tate. 

Pieces for which Tate served as an arranger remain on our website as the original work of the composer. 

A unique feature of this setting of the 23rd Psalm is its 21-measure refrain, giving the assembly a much more substantial role in singing the piece than is usually provided in such settings.

The verses—by contrast just 16 measures—are sung by the choir in a variety of voice combinations.

It is effective as a choir anthem or a communion processional when the additional length is welcome.
