    Get this from a library! The Southern harmony & musical companion: containing a choice collection of tunes, hymns, psalms, odes, and anthems, selected from the most eminent authors in the United States and well adapted to Christian churches of every denomination, singing schools, and private societies: with a musical anthology on compact disc. From the Psalms we have a perfect theology that is focused on the Savior and His work. Clearly, the Book of Psalms is the Holy Spirit’s sufficient hymnal for both the Old & New Covenant Church of Jesus the Messiah. As we sing Psalms, we show our unity with the people of God in all ages bound to a common Savior, who Himself sang them while.

      Indeed, the Psalms are treated in the NT both as a book of prayer and prophecy to be read and studied as well as a book of hymnody to be sung. That being the case, I think two different translations are entirely appropriate--a reading form and a singing form. Another reason to sing the Psalms in worship is that it is virtually impossible to sing bad theology when the Psalms are sung verbatim. The Psalms are part of the canon of Scripture; therefore, singing the text of the Psalms ensures that we are singing the inspired word of God rather than someone else’s interpretation of the word of God.

    Anthem. The rubric of the Book of Common Prayer of then reads 'In Quires and Places where they sing here followeth the Anthem.' At choral services of Mattins and Evensong, the choir at this point sings a different piece of religious music, which is freely chosen by the minister and choir. ESV Psalms, Read by Kristyn Getty. Featuring the voice of modern hymn writer Kristyn Getty, the ESV Psalms, Read by Kristyn Getty captures the expressions of tearful lament, prayerful meditation, and exuberant joy in the Psalms, offering listeners comfort and hope from Scripture amid the busyness and difficulties of daily life.

Since then the group has published psalter revisions at regular intervals, the most recent being The Book of Psalms for Singing, released in At its last synod the church approved an ambitious project: "To prepare a completely new singing version of the psalms over a ten-year period.

Structure and style. The psalms are sung unaccompanied, in a style known as "lining out" or "precenting the line," in which the leader of the performance, or "precentor," sings a line, after which the rest of the congregation follows, with each member allowed to embellish the melody as they wish, in a free heterophonic style of Gaelic psalm singing is influenced by piobaireachd.

Unless churches settle for viewing the choir's contribution as stand-alone performance, it's crucial to integrate choral anthems into the worship service.

Fedak finds this fairly easy, because his church follows the lectionary, much of its liturgy comes from the Presbyterian Book of Common of Worship, and most hymns come from The Presbyterian. Overall, I believe the Book of Psalms is the best place in Scripture from which to pray Scripture.

In part that’s because the Psalms is the only book of the Bible inspired by God for the expressed purpose of being reflected to God. God inspired. In the words of the ancient historian, Eusebius (–), “The command to sing Psalms in the name of the Lord was obeyed by everyone in every place: for the command to sing is in force in all churches which exist among nations, not only the Greeks but also throughout the whole world, and in towns, villages and in the fields.”.

Portions of the psalms have been the source for countless anthems, hymns, and choruses. Singing the Psalms is one of the surest ways of beginning to get away from our naturally humanistic view of the world, and to start seeing the world from God’s vantage point.

After singing the Psalms over time, as we imbibe their teaching slowly but surely, we start to think God’s thoughts after Him.With these thoughts in mind I have undertaken this project, and with its completion I thank God for the heritage of Psalm singing, and for His saving revelation of Himself in Jesus Christ, through the means of His inspired and written Word.
