        Beautiful piece but quite testing for the average choir. Worth persevering with.

        A very beautiful piece of music with a lovely soprano solo. Although some of the harmonies are difficult to master at first, once learn't it creates a very effective ambience. Suitable for people of all standards, as practice makes perfect!

        Although not the most accesible of pieces, Berkeley's setting of Psalm 23 still echo's the rolling pastoral imagery associated with the text whilst avoiding sentimentality or becoming contrived. The idyll presented in the opening bars of treble solo is compimented by luscious cascades of contrapuntal writing and more sombre chant-like reflections in the central sections. Chromaticism and dissonance is perhaps more refined than in some of Berkeley's other music which allows for a more fluid and congruent gesture.
        George Richford - (The University of Durham)
