Psalmody Class

“Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.” ~ Psalm 95 v 2.

Psalmody Classes held by John-Ross Murray in the new room at the entrance of the Church on Saturday evenings at 8-9pm.

Psalmody schedule:

Winter: December (Week 1) – January (Week 3)

Spring: May (Week 1) – June (Week 2)

John-Ross teaches known tunes and new tunes from the 1650 Scottish Metrical Psalter (Blue Sol-fa book) & Sing Psalms book. Using the sol-fa on the top leaf of the Psalter, the class begin singing a Psalm before looking at previous tunes & psalms and then going through and learning 2 tunes. Before singing the Psalm to the tunes learnt, John-Ross goes through the Psalm verse by verse giving enlightenment and context enabling the class to sing with more understanding and reverence.
