The 1650 Scottish Metrical Psalter (Split-Leaf)

(1 customer review)


This most recent reprint of The Scottish Psalmody is published by the General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) and contains the text of the 1650 Metrical Version of the Psalms. The 193 tunes included in this publication are drawn from a wide variety of locations and periods of history. The split-leaf format is designed to facilitate the selection of a tune suited to the content of the Psalm being sung (as well as the repertoire, culture, and musical ability of the singers). Tune suggestions are included for all 150 Psalms, and a topical index of the Psalms may be found at the back of this edition.

    This edition of the 1650 is wonderful to use. The split-leaf format takes some getting used to (moving your eyes between text and tune can get distracting, especially for someone like me who is used to the American hymnal format), but once that hurdle is overcome, it makes psalm singing a breeze. The suggested tunes are very helpful and allow for greater musical variety; no longer will I have to cycle through the few tunes I know by heart when singing. The only obstacle to my full endorsement of this edition is its price; $40 for a single volume is quite steep. However, I understand that Grange Press may be barely breaking even by offering it at that price, when overseas shipping costs are taken into account. So I am grateful nonetheless. Thank you for a fine edition of my favorite psalter.
