Georg Philipp Telemann's Deus, Judicium Tuum for SATB.
The prestigious Latin psalm setting "Deus judicium tuum" [Ps. 71/72] is among the finest from Telemann’s pen. Its composition is associated with the beginning of his eight-month sojourn in Paris in the fall of 1737, during which time he celebrated musical triumphs in the French metropolis. As he himself reported, with no little pride, the piece “was performed twice in three days by almost one hundred selected people in the Concert spirituel.” Three magnificent choral movements frame a richly-colored succession of demanding solo movements.
