This is one of the songs from John Rutter’s Psalmfest. I’m learning to sing Psalmfest to perform with Eltham Choral Society at a concert on 10 October. Thing is, this isn’t one we’re going to be singing and I was supposed to be practising a couple of others for rehearsal tomorrow. This is a duet.
But this is just so beautiful, I couldn’t resist ‘doing’ it. What the heck! Well, I practised the others as well. And now I sound like a horse with a sore throat.
And these two singers have such fabulous voices. They make the hair stand up on the back of my neck. The ringing soprano voice is Hannah Garner’s and the tenor is Johnny English, no, not Rowan Atkinson, Jonathan English, tenor.
It sets Psalm 84 to music.
