Notes: In this instance the congregation plays the role of accompanist. Although the ostinato is not difficult, care must be taken that the singers keep a steady 3+2+2 pulse. The drum and some leading singers can help with this. Before the solo voice’s final phrase there may be a pause. The solo voice needs to give a clear pickup to the next measure so that the congregation can fall into the final iteration of the ostinato. After each stanza, take time to reestablish the ostinato before beginning the next stanza. The congregation should sing softly. The solo voice should interpret the nuanced emotions of the psalm—longing, disdain, fear, exhaustion.
