THE LORD GOD WILL BLESS HIS PEOPLE WITH PEACE #*
This psalm setting utilizes an ongoing refrain to be sung by the congregation and hummed behind the verses. The verses represent 3 different melodies each presented in turn by soprano. alto, and men, with the refrain sung after each. Following the men’s last verse all three voices sing in counterpoint against the congregations final refrain. So it is; refrain, soprano verse, refrain, alto verse, refrain, men’s verse, refrain, three verses in counterpoint, refrain.
The sample performance does not represent this order of presentation, nor does it reflect text revision to inclusive language
