    I think Psalm 51 is appropriate for a baptism (specifically in the form of Miserere Mei, Deus) could anyone voice dissent to this idea?

    I'd agree with that. The 1979 BCP recommends 23 and 42 as well.

    To be sure I am suggestion a choir singing it in the form of Miserere Mei, Deus. For me it epitomizes Baptism.

    I would definitely use it over the two I mentioned, for sure.
