Known both as Psalm 18 and Psalm 19, this famous organ piece is a perfect, fanfare-filled recessional for weddings or other festive services. Based on the biblical text, The heavens declare the glory of God, the organ is registered bright and full, with alternating antiphonal-like sections playing as echoes from one division to another. Marcello was a famous Italian contemporary of Antonio Vivaldi in the baroque era, and this wonderful, very playable, musical celebration is an essential addition to the organist's library.
