Genevan Resources for the 42nd Psalm.

Tune composed in 1551

Meter: 8 7. 8 7. 7 7. 8 8

Mode: Ionian

Original French title: Ainsi qu'on oit le cerf

The third most popular Genevan tune.  This engaging and rollicking melody is matched to a downcast and plaintive text, the only really inapt pairing in the entire collection.  Go figure.
