These psalm settings are in the tradition of classical vocal polyphony as practiced in the modified a cappella style of the 17 th century ("stylus gravis"). Characteristic of this style is the continuo line, which generally doubles the vocal bass, only occasionally functioning independently. Despite its closeness to the tradition of the a-cappella style, Carissimi proves in this psalm to be a master of the artistic expression of words, which characterizes his music in the concertante style. This art is revealed here primarily in the rhythmically, highly differentiated diction of the words, which essentially distinguishes it from the flowing style of Palestrina.
