SATB choir, a cappella - Medium/Medium Difficult
Composed by J. William Greene. Parish. Choral, General. Choral octavo. Published by Paraclete Press (PL.M0207).

Item Number: PL.M0207

This chant-like work is based on a paraphrase of Psalm 119 by Frederick W Bassett. The piece is notable for its melodic continuity and interesting harmonic resolutions. The voices are treated both homophonically and in imitation. The words "your law 0 Lord!" are emphasized as what we keep in our hearts. The music reaches a climax at the text "My lips will pour forth praise" and the piece closes in the same quiet style as the opening. The vocal parts occasionally move beyond the center of the voice and they support the text in a most sensitive way.
