Psalms

Singing psalms to Anglican chant takes a lot of practice, especially if your choir doesn't do it very often, and perhaps has lots of members whose first language is not English. I therefore tend to write out the psalms for my choirs. You are welcome to use the scans posted in the table below.

"BCP" stands for the Book of Common Prayer. Most of the BCP psalms have been pointed for choral singing.

"CW" stands for Common Worship. Most of the Common Worship psalms have been pointed for congregational singing and do not include the doxology.

Two unfamiliar names: Richard Thiele was the organist at St. George's Church, Berlin, in the 1880s, whilst the Rev. Earée was the chaplain.

The chant by Sullivan was composed for St George's Church, Berlin. Follow this link to find out more about the chant and why Sir Arthur Sullivan clearly did not want to compose it.
