Abstract

The decision to set the original Hebrew texts of Psalms 24, 67, and 137 was a deliberate one, affecting nearly every compositional aspect of the work in that the nature of the Hebrew language informed the rhythm, meter and phrase structure of the melodic line. Tehillim presents Psalms 24, 67, and 137 in a dramatic fashion that is consistent with and illustrative of traditional Psalm interpretation, while reflecting the inherent nature of the Hebrew language. The work is in three movements, scored for tenor soloist, chorus, and organ, and approximately ten minutes and fifteen seconds in duration.
