About Psalms Online
The Psalms are part of our worship tradition extending back at least three thousand years, into the Old Testament era. They were highly valued by the early Christian communities and have been used worldwide ever since. The psalms are songs, so it is preferable that they are sung. There are various methods. Probably the simplest is to use a simple three or four note chant.
The psalms are an integral part of Anglican public worship. They should be used regularly. The Psalms Online project aims to make the psalms easily accessible to parish church musicians, sung to Anglican chant and using the ‘Common Worship’ psalter and lectionary in the Church of Ireland Book of Common Prayer.
A small number of well-known Anglican chants will be used consistently for the first twelve months of the project, starting in September 2019.

The online material has been proofed carefully. However, if you come across any errors or infelicities, we would be pleased to be told.
Whether you are an organist, choir director, or singer, we hope this facility will help you to present the psalms effectively and enjoy singing them more than ever!
