    There are a variety of places where you can listen to selections from the Westminster Shorter Catechism set to music. Here are a few including some by Bruce Benedict on YouTube:

    I've heard the folksy versions before and really like them. I wish he had the whole WSC done.

    I went to the church where Bruce was the music and arts director before he left for London with his wife. Redeemer Indy has a really sweet cd with music Bruce wrote for worship.

    I just want to reiterate how great something like singing is for kids if you have children. We sing the Psalms every night with our kids. Last night I heard my daughter (3) singing to herself: "You are my shield a gwowy Lord, you lifted up my head...."

    At least the folksy songs get up to the thirties and that's better than nothing.

    I bought the Bruce Benedict CD from CDbaby and it is excellent. Thanks Andrew for the tip.

    Hello all,
    thanks for the shorter catechism cd shout out. The 2nd CD is in the works which will feature the questions on the Sacraments and the Lord's Prayer.

    Thanks for the information. The tunes are very easy to pick up and I found myself singing over and over to the questions. This is a great resource for memorization in home study or a catechism class. My only concern is if it violates the RPW. :rofl:

    Ha, yes we can recite the WSC but don't you dare sing it!

    Thanking you on this post because it wouldn't let me thank the first post. On a different note, when are you going to start your own search engine website on Reformed issues?

    To the moderators: can we have an Ask Andrew forum?

    Thanks for all the posts. They've been very encouraging!

    The Veritas Press link is for the same set as Holly Dutton's Reformed Music.com which I referenced earlier.

    I think it is great to get the whole set. I have not been able to compare these yet. We have another cd by Tim and Lori (Tim's father is my former pastor) and they have beautiful voices.

    There are a lot of selections to choose from, which is kind of a good thing! :)
