Psalm 23, D706

First line:
The Lord is my shepherd
December 1820; first published in March 1832 as Op 132
author of text
Psalm 23
translator of text

Schubert composed this setting—originally not of the text in English, as heard here, but of Moses Mendelssohn’s German version of the renowned psalm—in 1820. It was written for a soirée given in Vienna by four musical sisters, the Fröhlichs, one of whom was a singing teacher. The piece quickly became a favourite and (unusually with Schubert) was soon published.
