The text´s poet, Jean de La Céppède (1550-1622), was born in Marseille and spent most of his lifeworking as a lawyer and magistrate in Aix-en-Provence. His principal work, Théorèmes, consists of515 sonnets dealing with the life of Jesus Christ and the "sacred mysteries of our redemption." LaCéppède´s poem is a translation of a psalm by David from the Old Testament of the Bible. Leguerneyalso set a psalm of David for medium voice and chamber orchestra, which was premiered by GérardSouzay in 1954. This orchestral Psaume LXII de David is also published by Musik Fabrik.

The French author Jean Roy, reviewing this duet in Le Monde de la Musique (January, 1997), wrote:"There is a grandeur and a dramatic sentiment that surpasses [a] work that one might dismiss as minor.
