This translation of Psalm 121 is from The Book of Common Prayer and the piece has a decidedly English choir-boy feel about it. There is a nice balance between unison, homophonic, and polyphonic textures which makes it useful in a discussion with your choir about choral texture. At the very least you should have this in your library of octavos. It’s a quick teach and sings very well.
