GENEVAN 100, by Louis Bourgeois (PHH 3), was first a setting for Psalm 131 in the 1551 edition of the Genevan Psalter; in the 1562 edition it was set to Psalms 100 and 142 as well. This is the second Genevan tune in the Phrygian mode (see also GENEVAN 51 at 51). Many people will associate Kethe's text with GENEVAN 134, the tune chosen in the Anglo-Genevan Psalter for Psalm 100 (hence GENEVAN 134 is usually named OLD HUNDREDTH). GENEVAN 100 is of more rhythmic interest and is worth the additional effort that may be required to learn and sing it well, though OLD HUNDREDTH is a useful alternative tune.
This tune needs a majestic performance and bright organ support. Two harmonizations are given: one from 1985 by Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) and, on the next page, a 1554 setting by Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) with the melody in the tenor. The latter is useful as a choral setting (perhaps on stanza 2) or as an alternative organ accompaniment. Another setting of Psalm 100 is at 176.
