Exceptional musician, performer, and composer W. Clifford Petty crafted this setting of Psalm 34 as recorded on his most recent WLP CD and music collection Touch Jesus (WLP 001254). Here Petty interprets the words of Psalm 34 in a simple gospel ballad style with choral harmonies and a blues/jazz style piano accompaniment. This work is approachable for choirs wishing to capture the flavor and spirit found in the rich heritage of gospel music. For the sake of authenticity, the piano and vocal parts reflect precisely what has been captured in the recording, a source of inspiration for soloists and choral singers.
Topic:  Love of God for Us; Mercy Praise; Social Concern
Liturgical Season:  Responsorial Psalm; Friday Morning Prayer Psalm
Sunday of the Year:  Ordinary Time 30 Year C
"While Psalm 34 ranks only slightly behind Psalm 23 as the most often-set-psalm in recent years for Catholic liturgical use, Petty provides a fresh take, using the underused antiphon 'The Lord hears the cry of the poor.' In his usual compositional fashion, the piano part is not for the faint of heart but worth it for the pianist skilled in playing in a gospel or jazz style...In all, this piece merits consideration as a staple of your Communion repertoire." — Jeremy Helmes, Pastoral Music, May 2012
