This first personal volume clearly identifies him as a Huguenot composer. The four-part texture with frequent homorhythmic passages and the free alternation of long and short syllables clearly belong to the world of protestant psalmody. Yet, in numerous passages, the richness of the rhythmic palette and the abundance of polyphony originate from within this framework: the rhythmic values are chosen to illustrate both words and ideas. And as much could be said of the use of rising and falling intervals, of the melodic shapes, and of the polyphony itself.
Although a youthful work, the depth and sincerity of construction of the Dix Pseaumes de David are as touching as the greatness of their creator’s vision is impressive. Their employment of modes and rhythm clearly announce certain essential features that would become the hallmark of his mature masterpieces.
