Richard Lambert Music

Psalm 116: I love the Lord (Op.53)

An anthem for SATB choir and organ, setting eleven verses from Psalm 116 (New King James Version)

This tonal anthem is centred around the key of F – progressing from minor to major, and exploiting the Lydian mode with colourful use of the B naturals. Largely elegiac and supplicatory in character, the anthem concludes with a jubilant affirmation, “Praise the Lord!”



This recording of Psalm 116: I love the Lord was produced using computer software called Sibelius: it is not a live recording.
