first, then the common measures, then the short measures, then the peculiar

measures.

At the head of each tune a passage from a Psalm or Paraphrase is indicated as suitable to be sung to it. It is hoped that, as a rule, the tunes will be sung to the passages to which they are set. But to guide in the use of the freedom of choice possible in a cut-leaved book each Psalm has prefixed to it names of tunes suitable to the whole or to portions indicated. It is much to be desired that respect should be paid by ministers in the use of the Psalms to the divisions thus indicated, and that the too frequent practice of giving out always the same number of verses, without regard to the connection of thought, should be discontinued.

In certain Psalms, of which only some verses are usually sung—such as the 73rd, the use of which is very much restricted to verses 23–26—in addition to tunes for the particular part, chants have been suggested to which the whole Psalm may be sung. This has been done with the view of promoting a wider and more varied use of the Psalms in praise than heretofore. It is felt that every means should be used to secure for the Psalms a prominent place in worship, and to prevent them from being pushed aside by the Hymns.

A selection of prose Psalms, pointed for chanting, has been added at the end of the metrical version, which it is hoped will increase the acceptableness and utility of the work.

This selection contains a considerable number of copyright tunes, which are printed by permission of composers and proprietors, in most cases generously granted without charge. The necessary acknowledgments are made in connection with each tune. If in any case copyright has been unintentionally infringed, the compilers trust the error will be excused.

May this “Psalter” promote the glory of God in the praise of the sanctuary! ROBERT G. BALFOUR, Convener of the Psalmody Committee

of the Free Church of Scotland.
