Plum Street Samplers ~ A Shepherd's Song
A SHEPHERD'S SONG
I have wanted to design something based on Psalm 23 for fifteen years, and this is finally it. I realize my shepherd is actually a shepherdess in pantaloons, but I didn't want to call it "A Shepherdess's Song" because the twenty-third Psalm was written by King David - who happened to be a shepherd and musician before he became king. (If this is common knowledge, you have my humblest apology - I stay pretty isolated in my Nebraska bubble.)
