Reviews
"Finally, there is David Ashley White's exquisite setting of Psalm 134, with its finely-planned arch shape that rises to a moving climax before subsiding. This lovely, evocative music can be done with smaller or larger forces, and it belongs in the libraries of all choirs that sing Evensong where it would be perfect after the Third Collect." -AAM Journal, March, 1998.

Description A plaintive and skillful setting of this psalm in a voicing that is flexible for whatever choir you have.

Anthem text
Behold now, bless the Lord,
all you servants of the Lord,
you that stand by night
in the house of the Lord.
Lift up your hands in the holy place
and bless the Lord;
the Lord who made heaven and earth
bless you out of Zion.
Behold now, bless the Lord,
all you servants of the Lord.

Text: Psalm 134 (Book of Common Prayer, 1979)
