Description

SATB Choir. Text from Psalm 122:6. The original SSTB score appeared posthumously in Musica Deo Sacra of 1668. This edition exchanges some material in the upper voice parts to create a more comfortable SATB setting. The 1668 publication included a Pars Organica, which suggests that the voice parts may have been doubled by the organ in service as well as in rehearsal. A wonderful polyphonic setting of this text for Advent.

O pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
They shall prosper that love thee.
