Quick Overview

The earliest of Ives’s many psalm settings, Psalm 42 (As Pants the Hart) was said to be premiered when the composer was 16, with sketches beginning several years earlier. The setting is a fairly traditional verse anthem with organ interludes and a vocal solo, illustrating Ives’s early mainstream writing, and occasional glimpses of the young composer’s penchant for surprise. Dur. 3’30”
