As mail clerk at Crown and Covenant, I often talk to people who are new to singing the Psalms. Since they are unfamiliar with singing from The Book of Psalms for Singing, I often suggest that they would benefit from a little tool that is available for free from us. This tool is called the Familiar Hymn Tune List in The Book of Psalms for Singing. It is a double-sided sheet of paper listing 120 familiar tunes of hymns that are used in The Book of Psalms for Singing. For example, Psalm 3 uses the tune of the very familiar hymn, Amazing Grace, while Psalm 45C uses the hymn tune for Crown Him with Many Crowns. Psalm 101 is sung to the tune of The Church’s One Foundation.
I usually include a copy of this list with orders for The Book of Psalms for Singing and am happy and eager to send this free aid to anyone who requests it. It also is available online by going to our storefront and clicking on Psalter Copyrights. There is a link to this tool available on that page.
