Two Versions of a Setting of Bishop's "I am in Need of Music"

This performance of David L. Brunner's setting of "I am in Need of Music" by the Vista Murrieta High School Chamber Choir (Murrieta, California) has just appeared on YouTube:

It has led me in turn to the following performance, with full orchestration, by the 2009 TMEA Texas All-State Mixed Choir:

From there one may go on to find many other versions... How blessed we are to live in a time when so many beautiful musical performances are so readily available!
