- Setting of Psalm 57
- SATB (divisi) with organ accompaniment
- Romantic harmonies
In this accompanied anthem for SATB voices (some divisi), Eugene Englert has set text from Psalm 57 to beautifully rich music.
Traditional harmonies laced with a touch of Romantic chromaticism and frequent and effective key changes, make this piece appealing to choir and listener, and useful in various liturgical settings.
The psalm text speaks of love, protection, shelter and faithfulness, before proceeding to a "musical" paean:
"Awake, my soul; arise, lyre and harp. Let us greet the dawn with song, and thank the Lord for his faithfulness and love."
