For the Sunday afternoon services at Calvary Baptist Church, we have been doing a survey of the Psalms. So far, we’ve spent two weeks considering examples of psalms of praise, and another two weeks the psalms of lament. We begin psalms of thanksgiving this week.
Our custom has been to conclude these services by singing the psalm that we’ve studied. For the psalms of lament, we used the tunes for the psalms from the Genevan Psalter.
For an introduction to these tunes, I’d recommend this recording. If any of the church folks are reading this post, you’ll hear that track 5 is the tune that we sang this past Sunday.

Frankly, what I’ve got here is a $2 Amazon mp3 credit (use the code HITUMBLR), and so I’m trying to find a disc to buy. Harmonia Mundi is among my very favorite record labels, so I’ve told Amazon to show me all of their albums under $8.
