This is a quiet, introspective setting of Psalm 131, in Norwegian (or English). The imagery of this particular psalm is appropriate for a variety of sacred and secular settings. The piece was written for a small church choir, and is suitable for school, community, and professional choruses. Piano accompaniment was originally intended, but it also works well with organ (requiring few adjustments).
