Composed in 1901, Psalm 137, “By the Rivers of Babylon”is Loeffler’s only sacred choral composition. Scored for women’s voices and instruments, it is offered here in a reduction for organ or piano accompaniment. The editorial suggestions for registration reflect the composer’ original instrumental timbres. The instrumental parts may be purchased separately. As the composer’s biographer, Ellen Knight, has written, the music is exquisitely lush and sensuous.”
