Franck's psalm setting is one of his late works, in symphonic writing, with bold harmonies and chromatism, and an unusual form. The tonality often shifts between major and minor. The choral writing is simple compared to the instrumental lines. The composition begins with a long instrumental introduction, very soft and in long notes, with D sounding throughout. After four measures of more melodious instrumental lines in dotted rhythm, tenors and sopranos imitate the sequence, now on A and stronger.
In a third imitation, all voices sing "Halleluiah" several times on D, again stronger. After the long building, the basses alone begin in measure 45 to sing the first two verses of the psalm with a chorale-like melody. The motifs of the melodious interlude are picked up by the voices, beginning with the tenors, then with added sopranos, finally all four, to express the fifth and sixth psalm verses, about everything breathing praise the Lord. A very loud climax is reached in measure A measure later, the text of verses 1 and 2 returns with the melody, now sung by all in unison.
The text and music of verses 3 and 4 are also repeated and lead to several forceful repetitions of "Halleluiah". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. SATB choir orchestra organ. Orthodox Union. Retrieved June 13, Retrieved 4 June January HTS Theological Studies.
