We’re getting close to completing our next studio recording – Psalm 115. This little snippet showcases our multi-instrumentalist – Mike Follent – laying down some resonator tracks in the studio to add colour to the other instrumentation. We’re in the studio working on the final vocal tracks, mixing and then off to mastering. Once completed Psalm 115 will be ready for release exclusively through our App in the next 3 – 4 weeks.
Psalm 115 – The Lord our Help and Shield
Psalm 115 is a continuation of the collection of the Egyptian Hallel (Praise) psalms (Psalms 113-118) sung by the Jews during their Passover celebrations. It therefore makes up part of the hymns which would have been sung by Jesus and His disciples on the night He was betrayed and arrested, the night before His crucifixion (Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26). It is especially meaningful to consider this psalm in the heart and on the lips of Jesus during those great moments. Regarding the structure of this psalm, the opinion of the majority of scholars is that the psalm is liturgical, intended to be sung by alternating groups of worshipers: the priests, the high priest, the people, and so on.
