Comments: Almost congregationalThis is meant to go with Psalm 43. These two are my longest through-composed Psalm setting, and reveal why I was forced to stop. To make it congregational one really can't have modulations, but 5 minutes in the same key is just about the limit before boredom sets in. May be beyond the limit! Anyway, it's the limit of my skill level.
