I recently heard a tv preacher suggest that psalms should be sung with music.
That seemed kind of cool, and I wondered if anyone here had ever heard of anything like that?June 20, 2014 at 2:37 pm #43428
I have heard portions of the Psalms sung to contemporary music, but I have not heard any of them sung to the music of their day. I would imagine the beat and meter would be unnatural sounding to western ears as would the rhyme and timbre, though it would be really neat to hear it in its original form.
Baruch shem kivod leolam va’ed. Barukh attah adonai melekh m’hulal batishbachot. (Blessed be His glorious majesty forever and ever. Blessed are You, Lord
a King to be praised in adoration.)June 20, 2014 at 3:09 pm #43435
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2June 20, 2014 at 5:49 pm #43451
Also, go to YouTube and look for music by Marty Goetz, a messianic Jew. One of his videos there is titled “Psalm Enchanted Evening” (cute, huh? ) and is full of music from the Psalms. It’s excellent!June 20, 2014 at 8:33 pm #43462
Also check out the Sons of Korah who have made several albums of Psalm songs. They have several youtube videos available.
I am convinced of this, that the One who began a good action among you will bring it to completion by the Day of the Messiah Jesus. Philippians 1:6June 20, 2014 at 10:11 pm #43469
Love Marty Goetz! A very anointed singer.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. . . . Proverbs 3: 5-6
