New Genevan Psalter New Genevan Psalter

by Canadian Reformed Churches

New English-language versification of the Psalms, set to the 16th-century Genevan Tunes. The Psalter consists of the 150 Psalms set to the Genevan tunes, long used by Reformed churches throughout the world. As well it includes four canticles which have always been associated with the Genevan Psalter, the Ten Commandments and the Songs of Mary, Zechariah, and Simeon. This Psalter is a new and contemporary English version of John Calvin’s French Psalter of 1562. It is not a translation of the original sixteenth-century French version but a new poetic rendering in contemporary English of the entire Book of Psalms and of the four canticles.
