The New Scottish Psalter : Being the Book of Psalms Marked for Expressive Singing with Tunes Contained in "church Melodies" (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New Scottish Psalter: Being the Book of Psalms Marked for Expressive Singing With Tunes Contained in "Church Melodies" But the peculiar gift of man is to sing knowing what he says. Further, the understanding ought to accompany the heart and affections, which cannot be unless we have the song imprinted in our memory, that we may be ever singing it. This present book, for this cause, besides what otherwise has been said, ought to be particularly acceptable to every one who desires, without reproach, and according to God, to rejoice in seeing his own salvation, and the good of his neighbours; and thus has no need to be much recommended by me, as it carries in itself its own value and praise. Only let the world be well advised, that instead of songs partly vain and frivolous, partly foolish and dull, partly filthy and vile, and consequently wicked and hurtful, which it has heretofore used, it should accustom itself hereafter to sing these heavenly and divine songs, with good king David. Touching the music, it appeared best that it should be simple in the way we hav 9 put it, to carry weight and majesty suitable to the subject, and even to be fit to be sung in church as has been said.
