Excerpt from A New Metrical Translation of the Book of Psalms, Accentuated for Chanting: An Attempt to Preserve, as Far as Possible, the Leading Characteristics of the Original, in the Language of the English Bible The attempt, however, under any modification, to combine prose composition, without selection, with musical notes, must always prove abortive and a system that rejects the expression of every feeling but that of solemnity, is especially unfit to represent the pathos and fervour which distinguish the Hebrew Psalms.
