The Lord is My Shepherd
Michael Sitton’s new setting of the 23rd Psalm follows in a centuries old practice of follow the leader thematic writing, hearkening of course to the Shepherd and his sheep! “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want”, a gentle refrain, and the ensuing verses, each with changes of harmonic color in accord with the text, create a miniature Rondeau. Beautiful and simple in form with a supportive organ accompaniment, this setting may be used with any combination of voices as will meet the needs of your choir. Commissioned for the Service of Evensong for the June 2011 AAM Convention.
