Psalm 51 metrical chant
This version of Psalm 51 shows up in The Poet's Book of Psalms.
But we have no shortage of metrical Psalm 51s: I've found 19.
But this poetry was so amazing I had to use it.
But since I don't know any tune with only 16 syllables, I had to make one.
But singing the same short tune 22 times gives the feel of a chant: the music disappears into the words and it becomes Enhanced Recitation.
But still strongly metrical.
