Four versions of this double chant are known. Three are found in the Cambridge University Library archive:
- The earliest version (undated) appears to be the double chant for Psalm 75. ATBB & organ in A major.
- 75B (from the Caius Psalter) is for SATBrB in D flat major.
- 75C double chant for Psalm 75. SATBrB & organ in D major
- 75D with different harmonisation of the final two bars version for SATBrB & organ in E flat major.
The SATB versions presumably date from the period 1982-1989 when the Gonville & Caius College Choir added a soprano line.
The chant is also published as Psalm 102 in the St. Paul's Psalter (Scott, 1997) in B flat major. The version features in a live BBC radio broadcast from St Paul’s Cathedral London, 20 December 1978, with the choir of St Paul’s Cathedral, directed by Barry Rose, and Christopher Dearnley (organ), now published on YouTube by the "Archive of Recorded Church Music". Psalm 102 is at 3:20. It is also included on Psalms from St Paul's, Vol. 8 Nos 93-104, from Hyperion.
