Scripture: Psalms 139.
The celebrated 17th century English author John Milton is known primarily for his later-career epic poetry. This paraphrase of Psalm 139:1-12, however, is one of his earliest documented workscomposed when the poet was only 15 years old. Here it is paired with Tender Thought, from the American folk tradition. This choral setting integrates much freely-composed material to prominently feature the violin and piano duo.
