Rescue Me, Recover Me for choir

USFchoirPiece #5 in a massive 7 year project to compose 150 pieces of music based on each of the psalms in the Bible.

“Rescue Me, Recover Me” is based on Psalm 130 and it started out as a work in the English choir tradition, but it certainly didn’t end up that way!

Instead, this piece transfigured itself into a verse-chorus format with vocalist and choir backing. Just different, is all. (And that’s one of the joys of the creative process!)

[I also don’t have a choir to hand for recording, so the audio sample below includes


  • 5+ minutes
  • Vocal Solo & Choir (Soprano, Alto, Baritone), Piano, Bass
  • Full score and lead sheet included
  • Melodies and harmonies grow and expand as the piece progresses
