The Psalms are beautiful poetic songs of prayer. The Psalms convey three important themes of Hebrew Scripture - that God is active in history, the necessity of human response to God through praise and prayer, and the beginning of wisdom is to Trust in God and fear of the Lord. The Psalms of Hebrew Scripture are composed of songs of praise sung to God in divine worship, accompanied by a musical instrument. King David sang a song of praise to the Lord when he was delivered from the grasp of his enemies and from the hands of Saul Second Samuel Their time of composition was primarily pre-exilic before BC, the time of the Babylonian exile and post-exilic after BC , but the time probably ranges over five centuries.

There is tremendous power in the spoken Word, and perhaps even more so when sung.


After finishing Psalm 1, I came up with a chord progression that I really liked for the beginning of Psalm 2. However, I only got a few verses into it before realizing that this whole Psalms-set-to-music thing was going to be very, very hard.

Another vision for this project has been to donate the vast majority of the profits to world missions. Both the Christian and Jewish traditions share a deep love of the psalms.

While often read or recited, they were also meant to be sung, as is clear from the textual indications of breaks and melodic notations. In the Jewish tradition, they were sung as offerings to God, as petitions and thanksgivings, as hymns of pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and as festival songs.

They were sung in the temple in Jerusalem, sometimes to the accompaniment of stringed instruments. Today the psalms remain an integral part of Jewish prayer books and liturgies.

Naturally, the psalms were the prayers and songs of the early church. For two thousand years now, they have been used as prayers in corporate worship and private devotions, and they are recited antiphonally in many services of Christian worship.

Beginning in the seventh century, with the Gregorian chant, the singing of psalms was incorporated into the daily and weekly rhythms of Christian monastic life. Even today, the six services of the monastic day are linked by the use of appropriate psalms, and the whole cycle of psalms is sung every week.

In seventeenth-century England, the Gregorian traditions of plainsong developed into the distinctively Anglican plainsong or chant. These antiphonal psalms were sung by choirs and eventually incorporated into public worship.
