for choral reading
Your group could use
six people in a row. They could recite their parts in the order of the
text. Then they could recite as A A' B B' C C'. Alternatively, you could
assign C and C' to the audience with two or four readers for the A and
B parts. The psalm is brief and could easily be memorized.
