need help locating "The King of Love My Shepherd Is"

The arrangement I'm looking for was SATB with an alto / baritone duet.  Our church choir sang this in the 60s and I think it may have been published by Schirmer, but do not know the composer / arranger

I believe the composer is John Stainer. That is a beautiful piece, depending on the arrangement. There are some that really are watered down... hope this helps!

I'd bet that the version you are thinking of was done by Harry Rowe Shelley. Don't know that it is still in print, but the SATB version was indeed published by G. Schirmer as #3125. It was also published in other voicings; we have an SSA version in our library. It's an old chestnut; the copies we have indicate that the piece was copyrighted in 1886

The Shelley is definitely the best setting of this; it's one of my choir's favorites. If you can't find it, let me know and I can lend it. tomseniow42(a)
