Welcome to the Psalm Index

For hundreds of years, the Psalms were at the heart of English congregational singing, but they now lie neglected by most churches. The reason, I believe, is the difficulty of finding good, contemporary musical settings. The goal of this page is to link to the best congregational setting available for each Psalm, and eventually build an index to the entire Psalter.

If you are not sure where to start, please look at my Editors Picks.
