This setting of Psalm 23 (The Lord is my Shepherd) is more musically demanding and technically difficult than some of the well-known choral settings, yet obtains an even greater feeling of tranquility. It is scored for solo medium Voice and Piano.
Paul Creston (1906-1985) was an American composer of Italian descent. He taught himself composition and music theory while working full-time to support his family, meaning his style was independent of any outside influence. His work is noted for its complex and shifting rhythms, while retaining a distinctly modern American tonal sound.
