Psalm 69, a psalm of deep lament, is given a stark treatment in this setting. It is a crying out by any community that witnesses injustice or persecution, whether first-hand or on a global level. In the words of the composer, “I imagined that…those singing might hear their own song of lament resonating and repeating from others in the assembly.”
