ANCIENT PRAISE AND WORSHIP MUSIC FOR THE MODERN CHURCH
The beauty of the Psalter has always been found in its extensive variety of tunes, simple rhythms, fascinating modes, and intricate rhyme schemes.
“NO ONE CAN SING ANYTHING WORTHY OF GOD WHICH THEY HAVE NOT RECEIVED FROM HIM.” — AUGUSTINE
The New Genevan Psalter features the 150 Psalms and four Biblical canticles rhymed in contemporary English using the words found in the Bible.
CONNECT WITH THE CHURCH OF ALL AGES AND PLACES
A congregation that sings the Psalms of the Bible is rooted in the church of all ages. First published 450 years ago in French, the Genevan Psalter has been rendered into dozens of languages and consistently used by thousands of churches throughout the world up until today.
Listen to the Psalms
The Jubilee Octet choir has recorded a selection of Psalms set in the Genevan tunes.
Each video demonstrates how the psalm might be sung in unison as a congregation, and then in four-part harmony.
“the Psalms of David are inspired by the Holy Spirit. And for this reason, when we sing them, we are assured that God puts the words in our mouth, as if he himself were singing through us to exalt his glory.”
- John Calvin
There are dozens of websites dedicated to providing musical resources for the Genevan Psalter: sheet music for various instruments, metrical translations, choral harmonies, etc.
