Although the work was commissioned for the 1965 Southern Cathedrals Festival at Chichester Cathedral, it was premiered on July 15, 1965 in New York with Bernstein himself conducting. The text is taken directly from the psalms and was set by the composer in the original Hebrew. Part 1 is based on Psalms 100 and 108, Part 2 is based on psalms 2 and 23 and Part 3, psalms 131 and 133. The setting is technically demanding for the performers and in particular, the first movement is noted for the challenge of its wide vocal range, complex rhythms, and unusual intervals throughout the piece. The harp plays a highly significant role in the work; indeed the full orchestral score features two harps, though Bernstein later made a reduction for one harp, organ and percussion.
