A few weeks ago I posted a new Psalm setting called “The Lord Comes to Rule the Earth with Justice.”  I mentioned that I would post our ‘performance’ so you could see how we introduced and played it from scratch. 

Notice the simplicity of the introduction, how the drums creep in, how the singers allow the voices to build and solo…basically take note of the texture, arrangement, and balance of the instruments. This is how we interpreted the lead sheet for a Responsorial Psalm in the context of the liturgy.

Comments welcomed!
