The Saint Andrew's Metrical Psalter
The Saint Andrew's Metrical Psalter is a new edition of "The Psalms in Metre Selected from the Psalms of David" originally published by the Protestant Episcopal Press of New York in 1836. The Psalm lyrics were composed by Nahum Tate (poet laureate of England) and Nicholas Brady (an Anglican clergyman) in their "New Version of the Psalms of David" in 1686. The "Tate and Brade Psalter" as it came to be called, stands alone for its literary elegance and historical significance. This new edition has retained some of the original tunes and has incorporated well-known traditional hymn tunes as well as a number of newly composed ones. In addition, each Psalm has a simplified keyboard accompaniment with guitar chords for the greatest musical variety and accessibility possible.
