Woodgates, Benjamin: Psalm 67 (PDF)
Soprano & Baritone (or Tenor) Solos and SATB unaccompanied (with divisions)
This simple and effective setting of Psalm 67 was written for the marriage ceremony of two of the composer’s close friends.
The work is constructed around the psalm’s refrain ‘Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee’, initially incanted very softly by the SATB chorus then gradually strengthening with each iteration. In and around this simple architecture two soloists, a baritone and a soprano, weave melismatic strands of melody into a prayer for enlightenment and harmony. The soloists begin in alternation but come together at the psalm’s conclusion, finishing as one voice.
The work may be performed with the soloists positioned either amongst the choir or set apart within the acoustic space.
