Excerpt from The Paragraph Psalter: Arranged for the Use of Choirs
The verse-division of the Psalms in the Prayer Book offers many difficulties in the way of their musical rendering. This differs considerably from the division in the Hebrew text, which is followed in the Bible Version. Where the Prayer Book division seriously obscured the structure of the Psalms, I have ventured to alter it (e. G. I, 3 f; iv, 6 f; v, 9 f; vii, 9 f; xvi, 4 f; xix, 14 f; xlviii, 2; lxiii, 1 f; lxxi, 1, 9; lxxviii, 38 f; xcii, 7; xcviii, 1 f; cxvi, 13, 16 cxxxix, I.
