English. Psalm 22, Psalm 31, Isaiah 53:1-12, Matthew 26:36-75, Mark 14:33-36, Luke 22:39-62, John 11:28-44, Hebrews 5:5-11.

One of the most well-known of the early American canons, originally appeared in the New England Psalm Singer. It was written in 1770 by William Billings, a self-taught singing-school teacher and composer who served as choir leader at Old South Church in Boston. In this edition by Philip Kern, the vocal setting retains the simple drama of the original, compellingly underscored by the newly-composed keyboard accompaniment. This outstanding arrangement is appropriate for both school and church choirs and may be performed by mixed or treble voices.
