This book of psalms is an attempt to collect some of the best settings of English versified psalms and paired them with fitting tunes. We have attempted to include psalm settings that faithfully capture both the theological depth and poetic richness of the inspired psalms, while also prioritizing those that are intelligible and singable for modern Christians. Our sources for these translations range in both time and location, including historic settings from seventeenth-century English and Scottish Psalters and more recent contributions. Our Lord fulfilled the Psalms, sang the Psalms with his disciples, and through his apostles he clearly commanded us to sing psalms. We believe psalm singing is an important way to conserve biblical worship in Christian congregations.
This collection contains metrical versions of all 150 psalms (194 settings).
Cloth hardcover, sewn binding, grey with gold lettering.
