Robert Scholz’s arrangement of René Clausen’s well-known setting of Psalms 96 and 22 is a wonderful addition to the male choir repertoire. Scholz remains true to the original Clausen harmonies, rhythms and phrases. The bright key of “G major” sits well for male voices. An excellent tenor soloist is required. Some rhythmic patterns in the 5/4 section along with the improvisation section for tenors will need some extra rehearsal time. This would be an excellent opening or closing number for high school, college or community choir.
