Adonai, My Shepherd

(Psalm 23)

Meredith Tompkins (composer)


  • Descant
  • Soprano 1
  • Soprano 2
  • Alto
  • Piano
  • Tambourine (opt.)


With a variety of musical elements reminiscent of Eastern European and Middle Eastern folk songs, Tompkins aptly utilizes the cultural background of Biblical poetry in this dance-like setting for the emerging treble chorus. Mood shifts in the piano part, chorus, and text make this an excellent piece for experimenting with a variety of timbres, vocal colors, and expression. Highly suitable for year-round programming needs.
