Stephen McManus, from County Down, Northern Ireland, has given us a captivating setting of Psalm 30.
The refrain text, "I will praise you, Lord; you have rescued me," is clothed in a minor mode melody that meanders harmonically but never loses its lovely singability.
In perpetual motion style, the piece has continuous sixteenth-note motion from beginning to end in the piano accompaniment (also playable on organ).
Walking quarter notes appear in the bass, to anchor the eighth note refrain and the perpetual motion in the right hand.
Verses are sung by two soloists (high and low voices).
Psalm 30 can be used with congregation singing the refrain, or can easily be sung by two soloists or 2-part choir, with piano or organ accompaniment.
