The Hesperian Harp version (given here) differs from the one that the quartet (Northampton Harmony) sings. In Hesperian the treble comes in first on the fuge; one the recording Cath Oss comes in before Kelly House.


The text is a metrical translation (8-6 8-6) of Psalm 119 verse 92 by Isaac Watts
Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction. (KJV)

In Hebrew with 1917 JPS translation.
