Description: Joelle Wallach’s setting of the 23rd Psalm is based just a little loosely on the King James’ translation of the Bible, and uses the oboe or flute to evoke a shepherd’s pipe as the organ or strings create a peaceful, verdant landscape in which the voices can sing a gentle and confident hymn, creating a slightly asymmetrical shape from the strict parallelisms of the structure of the verse.
