This setting of Psalm 33, for SATB and organ, was written for the massed choirs of Warwick Schools Foundation and first performed as part of the Warwick Schools Foundation Service at St Mary's, Warwick in September 2023.

The jubilant setting of this well-known text combines a rippling organ accompaniment with tuneful motifs and fanfare-like passages. The vocal parts have deliberately been written to be accessible to choirs of all standards, with little divisi and careful consideration given to individual lines.

Not only could this piece be sung as an anthem in a liturgical setting, but it could also easily be included in a concert. I hope that choirs will find great pleasure in exploring and performing this work.
