In this site we wish to share with you our enthusiasm for Psalm Singing and to tell you about the Worthy to be Praised series of Psalmody CDs. While many Psalmody CDs exist, these are unique, having one disc of beautiful Psalm Singing and one disc to teach the harmonies for these tunes.
The discs, which have a distinctively Scottish flavour, are attractively produced and make ideal gifts. With appeal to all ages, they have been used successfully in home education and in Church Psalmody Classes for both children and adults.
To browse the tracks or to purchase, please visit our Web Store.
There are now 12 volumes, each containing 2 CDs – a total of 144 tunes.
Disc 1 is a collection of Psalm portions sung A Cappella – unaccompanied in four part harmony – by a small group including professional musicians. Listen to some samples below.
Disc 2 provides a unique opportunity for learning to sing the parts – soprano, alto, tenor or bass – for the tunes on Disc 1.
The words are all from the 1650 Scottish Metrical Version of the Psalms, which can be obtained here. From Volume 4 onwards, Disc 1 also contains four extra tracks with Scottish Gaelic Psalm Singing and one extra track of children's voices.
The Worthy to be Praised CDs are produced by the Psalmody Committee of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing). All proceeds from sales on this website will be transferred to the church to cover the costs of production and finance future recordings.
