Hear my crying, O God

author of text
Psalms 61 & 115

Hear my crying, O God is scored for eight-part unaccompanied choir, though the full eight parts are not employed all the time. Certain ideas recur, the Scotch snap and the rising and falling scales of the opening, for instance. Almost throughout, there is simultaneous crotchet and quaver movement. It is a piece full ot fear; the concluding 'Praise the Lord' is distinctly muted. It is an attempt to contain a deal of drama in a rather small space.
