Gambaccini’s desert island death discs – Psalm 23

Charles Cowling


Lush, lovely, accessible. Do people associate it too closely with TV’s Vicar of Dibley? We don’t know, we never watched it.

    Goodall out of Rutter? Jolly clever writing. A good choice by Gambo, I think: a modern version which harks back (words) but is also (melodically) now.

    I’ve sung it on several occasions. You only get to hear a tiny bit of it in the theme tune but the rest is quite good. Particularly the “Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death” bit. It’s by Howard Goodall who I think also did the Blackadder theme tune.

    You never watched it?! Then you have some serious catching up to do! 😀

    Luverley – but in practice, one most often comes upon the tune “Crimond” for The Lord’s My Shepherd,” no?
    Personally, I prefer “Brother James’ Air,” hower, mine is not to choose, but to provide!

    Keep up the Gambo selections Charles, he was so good!
