Reubke's Sonata on the 94th Psalm is a symphonic poem, based on the text of Psalm 94. This is definitely one of my favorite pieces of organ music - showing off the full expressive capacity the instrument. It works very well on the Sampleset of the Salisbury Cathedral Willis.
(Grave - Larghetto)
1 O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2 Arise, thou Judge of the world: and reward the proud after their deserving.
(Allegro con fuoco)
3 Lord, how long shall the ungodly triumph?
6 They murder the widow, and the stranger: and put the fatherless to death.
7 And yet they say the Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
17 If the Lord had not helped me: it had not failed but my soul had been put to silence.
19 In the multitude of sorrows that I had in my heart: thy comforts have refreshed my soul.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God is the strength of confidence.
23 He shall recompense them their wickedness, and destroy them in their own malice.
