Drop, Drop Slow Tears Top Pick
For 2 part mixed choir and keyboard (organ or piano) - an immediately useful setting of Gibbon's tune Psalm 46 with the text by Phineas Fletcher. The accompaniment provides interest and the vocal parts are easily managed - this can even be sung by two singers. The recording was made live and differs slightly from the printed version. If you are looking for a more straightforward setting, we have one available in 4 parts. Learning Tracks are available for this piece and are accessible from the last page of the downloaded .pdf.
Drop, drop, slow tears, and bathe those beauteous feet, which brought from heaven the news and Prince of Peace.
Cease not, wet eyes, his mercies to entreat; to cry for vengeance sin doth never cease.
In your deep floods drown all my faults and fears; nor let his eye see sin, but through my tears.
