Small changes, as usual, to our musical bill of fare; both the Psallite setting of Ps 50(51) and the one by Stephen Dean, for instance, are strong and simple settings that easily bear annual repetition. Our third setting of the opening verse of this psalm was by Lassus.
My setting of the Gospel Acclamation offers a hybrid refrain adapted from three of the suggested texts:
Glory and praise to you, Lord Jesus,
You are the Word of God.
