Musical Morning

This is one of my very favorites of all time. I sang it with Cedar Rapids Concert Chorale and have been ‘in love’ ever since. This piece stats out with Psalm 23 (in Hebrew) and don’t let a few shaky notes at the beginning turn you off. The boy a ALL heart and is a delight to watch sing. When the sopranos and altos sing antiphonally I think it is ‘Thou preparest a table before me……..” Then the men come is with a juxtaposition of Psalm 2 (Why do the heathen rage…) and then it resolves back to The Lord is my Sheperd again at the end. Leonard Bernsein is the composer and conductor. If you don’t like it the first time, try listening to it a few times.
