The Lord is My Shepherd is best known as the theme tune to the award-winning BBC TV series 'The Vicar of Dibley' which starred Dawn French. Goodall's setting of Psalm 23 is warm and melodious and has been, and will continue to be, popular with choirs everywhere.
This best-selling arrangement is for SATB choir with piano accompaniment.
I love this piece of music and it was great to have it in print. Certainly would recommend it. Anonymous

Good popular piece for basic choirs (slightly more tricky than you think in one or two places). Brings a smile to singers and listeners alike! Anonymous

This is as all-embracing a repertoire item as anything in our library. It fits in with church programmes, but is even more appropriate in entirely secular programmes.
The harmony is not as obvious as one would at first think, so that the singers are kept interested throughout. Nice to have an increasingly quiet ending, from full choir right down to solo.
We would really like more items cast in this mould. Anonymous

Sehr schöner Satz SATB, ich meine, original aus der britischen Serie "The Vicar of Dibley", ohne Instrumente allerdings, und leider auch ohne Akkorde, aber das hatte ich auch nicht erwartet. Anonymous
This is terrific little anthem, enjoyed by all our singers. Some of the parallel chords are not as easy as they look for altos & tenors. The 'Valley of the Shadow' section is rhythmic fun, especially the bold unison moments where the 'fear no evil'. The soprano version available online here is only the 'theme', so doesn't match up. Therefore you can't save money by buying top-line copies for the trebles, sadly. Anonymous
