    Question about Exclusive Psalmody

    This is a question that I was asked by a friend who is not completely on board with EP, but I don't have an answer and am curious myself. So this may be more for those who have a conviction of the EP position, but wouldn't mind hearing from anyone who might have valid input. So my question is...

    Dear brothers, I have translated the Catechism on Praise, by Alexander Blaikie, into Brazilian Portuguese. I have some questions regarding grammar and interpretation. I hope the PB members may aid me concerning the following questions. There is very little Exclusive Psalmody material in...

Previously we had around...

    iOS and Android 1650 Split Leaf - General Availability.

    Just in time for the Lord's Day! I am pleased to announce the general availability of the 1650 Psalter for iOS. It is a little behind Android right now as Apple takes longer to approve updates - days instead of hours. But if you snag it now you will probably get an update to the app around...

    Psalms for Singing, 21st Century Edition: A Review

    The full title is "The Psalms for Singing: A 21st Century Edition". It is hard to find information on this psalter, whether it be from its own website or others. I do not think a good review can be done without extensive use of the psalter and I just simply do not have the time to devote to this...

    Book of Psalms for Singing: A Review

    This psalter still has and will always have a solid place in my heart: I was first introduced to the singing of psalms using this psalter and many of the words will remain indelibly engraved in my mind. This psalter is available for purchase from Crown and Covenant Publications. Background...

    The Scottish Psalmody: A Review

    Like The Comprehensive Psalter the text of this psalter is from the 1650 Scots Metrical Version (SMV) so I will not review the text itself. It is available for purchase primariily from the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing). Background Aside from the history of the SMV, I do not know much...

    Complete Book of Psalms for Singing: A Review

    Titled, The Complete Book of Psalms for Singing with Study Notes, this psalter is put out by the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia and was largely under the direction of Rowland Ward. Two distinct thoughts came to my mind as I looked through this psalter: first that it is apparent it is a...

    Also known as the 1650 Psalter, the Psalms of David in Metre, and the Scottish Metrical Version (SMV). It is widely available both for free online and for sale in various formats (words-only or with music). Some recommended versions are The Comprehensive Psalter, if it can still be found, or The...

    "The Psalter" of 1912: A Review

    This psalter is still widely used, primarily in CRC and PRC circles as closely as I can gather. It has the prestige of being a joint effort of 9 denominations, according to its introductory note. In many respects it was an improvement over the lack of fluidity, but from my standpoint its...

    Sing Psalms: A Review

    This will be more of first impressions than a review and I will try to add more information later as I look deeper into the translation. The entirety of the text is available in PDF or Word format from here. And I really appreciate them making it available for people to use freely. It is...

    Exclusive Psalmody - Thoroughly Stated and Defended

    I wanted to share a set of sermons I've been working my way through. I think you will find this set of sermons very helpful whether you are new to EP, have questions about it, or are a seasoned psalms-only singer. You will probably be tempted to jump right to the objections - which they are...

    Westminster psalm singing omissions in catechism - Why?

    Dear Brothers, I have been discussing this at Deformation or Reformation? I would like to know your thought on this here: All the ordinary duties of worship are listed in WCF Ch 21:5 which include psalm singing. The only duty not listed here is prayer, which is a special duty that...

    Psalm Player: All the Psalms in one place

    When Christians come together, song is often the result be it in congregational worship of God or in small fellowships. Christianity has a rich heritage of giving the world inspiring hymns. Another perhaps almost forgotten Christian heritage is exclusive psalmody, or the singing only of the...

    Any EPers in Hymn Singing Churches?

    Hi everyone. I've recently embraced exclusive Psalmody as the only consistently Biblical application of the regulative principle to our congregational singing. John Murray's thoughts on the issue clinched everything for me. Nevertheless, I'm a member of a church who embraces historic hymnody...
