About the music
The composer chose to highlight various key phrases in the Psalm 23 text and to build the musical structure of the piece around these textual pillars. The treatment of the text is like unto someone reading the psalm, and then perusing back through it -internalizing certain words and phrases, not necessarily always in order. As a result, parts of this musical setting of Psalm 23 are meditative, others are triumphant, and still others have the sense of feeling comforted and loved. The Latin word lauda (translated praise) is interwoven into these musical vignettes and plays a major role in the energy that drives the piece. The flute and oboe also give connection and color to the various textual and musical ideas and create a sense of yearning and dependence - one on the other. The listener feels pulled in to the inherent gentleness, yet inner strength of the work.
