”The church in the Stockholm borough of Hjorthagen, a name that translates literally into “deer enclosure”, has a statue of a deer by the altar. This statue represents the thirsty animal of Psalm 42, and a setting of this psalm is performed on Sundays as a communion anthem. This piece was commissioned by the current organist and choir director of the church, Karin Oldgren.
The setting aims to capture the sweet longing for the Lord depicted by the lyrics.” Pär Olofsson, musician in Oscarskyrkan, Stockholm
