Welcome. You've stumbled on a project that I expect to last for at least a few years. The goal? Put each of the psalms to music, with minimal changes in the text. This is just the latest psalm. Truthfully, this project can only be properly experienced as a body of work. Each psalm reflects different styles, instrumentation and musical treatment. Volume One, (psalms 1-8) is already available via my website, http://www.krismacqueen.com. The psalms were originally composed as song, many of them for public worship, and they continue to stand as some of the most guttural prayers ever uttered. A significant challenge in all of this is that there really is no rhyme or meter existent in the text, certainly not in translation. The result of putting these ancient poems back into song should be, at the very least, interesting. I hope you find something here worth bringing back with you and even, perhaps, sharing with others.
