(dated 1794 to 1796)
Section 12 is for SATTB solo, implying that there is a non-solo - ie choral - component; RISM seems to confirm this. Some parts list "alto concertato", e.g. Some other versions listed at RISM (possibly different settings of the Psalm, though in the same key) require orchestra.
Composed 1794–1796 or earlier (nb: - )(dates on autograph manuscripts are not always reliable composition dates, see note in comment section @ Symphony, Op.67, by Ferdinand Hiller workpage, e.g.) , but seems not to have been published until his complete choral works for the Sing.-zu-Berlin were published in 1837-39 (1838 for the relevant volume).
Described in the new 1986 edition of this work as "Motette für vier- bis achtstimmigen Solo- und Tuttichor".
