To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul : Vocal score
for SATB and organ In this gently uplifting setting of the opening verses of Psalm 25, a psalm of faithfulness and trust, Skempton employs seamless homophony to create a sound-world that encourages the listener to reflect on the psalm's proclamations. With beautifully blended vocal parts, resonant harmonies, and a supportive organ line, To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul will appeal to any choir looking for a poignant addition to their repertory.
