The Musical and Personal Legacy of William Byron Webster

The 23rd Psalm

the best known Psalm set to music

As a man of faith, a musical composer, and someone deeply dedicated to the idea that we should all direct our personal efforts to improving the human condition, William Byron Webster set the best known Psalm, The Lord’s Prayer, to music to reflect his beliefs that turning to God can give us strength in our personal and public lives. He sees Divine Authority as giving strength to all, even the least among us.
