Psalm 27 – The Lord Is My Light

This song has long been a staple of the Boston Community Choir and JVOI has had the opportunity to sing it jointly with a couple of choirs we have sung with. Unfortunately it has never become a bone fide part of our repertoire. I think it’s time to revisit that.

To me, this song has one of the best, most difficult, most fun to get right, and most infectious vamps of any song I know (starting at 1:46). The varied syncopations in the alto and soprano parts are daunting, but when it all comes together under the striding bass bottom and the tenors, it’s vocal magic.
