Yōshayv B’sayser Elyōn (Psalm 91)

for SATB chorus, a cappella

This setting is original and described in the score to be sung as “sultry.” The music gradually increases in speed until it is sung at a frenetic pace. It abruptly halts, and the final phrase is sung slowly in a raw “sultry” ending. This setting would be perfect for a concert incorporating various Psalms or for a multi-cultural concert.

    Originally written for a Portuguese children’s choir, this simple a cappella setting could equally be performed by an adult women’s choir. It is mostly in two parts (SA), but there is an optional 3rd part towards the end of the piece. The first few measures may be sung as a solo. Translation: “Not unto us, […]

    The familiar words, “It came upon a midnight clear”, are set to a lively tune, with piano accompaniment, and a simple refrain is added, with the words “Deo, Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo” (“Glory to God in the highest”). Written with women’s voices in mind, it could also be tackled by a good children’s choir.
