General information

Spiritual song, originally Hebrew poetry (150 pieces) collected in a prayerbook in the bible: the book of psalms, adopted by the Church and translated in many languages. Musical adaptations in the form of Latin motets are very famous in the Roman Catholic tradition. In the protestant world translation in metrical verse, supplied with special melodies, became typical for the churches in the calvinist tradition. The words were supplied by Clément Marot and Théodore de Bèze and they were set to music by many French Renaissance composers, like Claude Goudimel, Louis Bourgeois, Paschal de L'Estocart and Claude Le Jeune, but also by the more secular oriented Clément Janequin. A special mentioning deserve the early Dutch metrical psalter which uses secular tunes, the Souterliedekens, which were set to music by Jacobus Clemens non Papa.

Note on the different numbering of the Psalms

There is a confusing difference in the numbering of the Psalms. This is caused by the fact that the Vulgate or Vulgata (V) (the Latin translation attributed to Hieronymus or St. Jerome) followed the numbering of the Greek translation of the Bible (Septuaginta). Latin psalms have traditionally followed this numbering. Protestants and Protestant composers returned to the numbering of the Hebrew Bible (H). Almost all modern bible-editions (including the Nova vulgata) use the Hebrew numbering.

A résumé of the differences

  1. Psalms 1-8 (V) = Psalms 1-8 (H)
  2. Psalm 9 (V) = Psalms 9,10 (H)
  3. Psalms 10-112 (V) = Psalms 11-113 (H)
  4. Psalm 113 (V) = Psalms 114,115 (H)
  5. Psalms 114,115 (V) = Psalm 116 (H)
  6. Psalms 116-145 (V) = Psalms 117-146 (H)
  7. Psalms 146,147 (V) = Psalm 147 (H)
  8. Psalms 148-150 (V) = Psalms 148-150 (H)

tip:

Except for 1-8 and 148-150 Psalms in Latin have one number less than the modern ones.
When in the range of 112-116: double-check the numbering.

Examples

The famous penitential psalm Miserere mei, Domine is Psalm 50 in the Vulgata, but will be found sub Psalm 51 in any modern bible. Another penitential psalm: De profundis (Psalm 129 in the Vulgata) is Psalm 130 for Protestants (Aus tiefer Not for Germans). A psalm very dear to Protestants like Psalm 116 (f.i. very famous because almost all German composers were invited in the around 1618 to make a musical score of this Psalm (Schütz, Schein, Praetorius) has its counterpart in the Latin Psalms 114 and 115.

Information about performance

It is the custom in some circles, for example among Monks and Nuns, and in the Anglican Communion, in many Cathedrals, to sing the Psalms frequently. Schemes in which the entire Psalter was sung in a day, a week, or a month were common, with the last being perhaps the most common of all. The earliest tradition of singing the Psalms developed may have originated in the Jewish Synagogue or Temple, and evolved into plainsong, in which the Psalm was sung in unison to a Psalm tone, a formula for handling texts with different numbers of syllables and accent patterns. Elaboration of the plainsong Psalm tone, by adding Organum, singing the text and melody in parallel intervals, first octaves, later fifths, (and less commonly other intervals) later developed into complete harmonizations, called Faux-bourdons; these in turn evolved into Anglican chants.

It was the usual practice most places for the Gloria Patri (sometimes called the lesser doxology) to be appended to each Psalm, set of Psalms, sung to the same tone, generally as two "extra" verses of the Psalm.

The Psalter contained in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (BCP) of the Church of England is very little changed from the Psalter included in the first English Book of Common Prayer in 1549, and generally matches the Latin text most closely in syllable count and accent patterns; when it is necessary to sing an English text to a setting originally intended for a Latin text, the translation from the 1662 BCP is often a good starting point.

Types of psalmody

Whereas the choice of psalm texts depends on the liturgical calendar or prescripitions, the choice of reciting tone will depend on various elements:

  • the liturgical occasion (office or eucharist)
  • timing of the psalm (after a reading, during a liturgical action (introits, for example), in its own right (most of the office)
  • the solemnity of the occasion (Sundays vs weekdays, feasts, Holy Week, …)
  • the kind of performance that one seeks (or that is warranted by the occasion):
    • direct psalmody - sung by choir or soloist in its entirety (e.g. the various Tractus settings in Lent, or the Canticles of the Paschal vigil)
    • antiphonal psalmody - an antiphon or 'refrain' is sung before and after the psalm verse(s), which are performed by a soloist (e.g. the responsoria prolixa from matins, responsory psalms from the mass, Venite adoremus after the invitatory)
    • responsorial psalmody, whereby the congregations splits up into 2 halves and alternates between even and uneven verses, thus singing the psalm in its entirety (e.g. most of the office psalms)


Psalm tones

The choice of reciting tone also depends on the mode of the antiphon it follows. Antiphons in 2nd mode will take a reciting tone in the 2nd mode, etc.

Most modes have a number of different tones associated with them, the so-called differentiae (singular: differentia). The main point in using differentiae is to choose one whose final cadence leads to the first note of the antiphon that follows. An overview of the modes with all their differentiae can be found in the Liber Usualis.

A psalm tone consists of 4 elements:

  • intonation: a fixed fomula intoning the psalm, taking the melody up to the reciting tone or tenor,
  • tenor: sometimes called tuba, the equivalent of our modern dominant, which takes the majority of the verse text,
  • mediatio: or suspending cadence, halfway through the verse (marked with an asterisk * in many editions)
  • terminatio: or final cadence, ending on one of several possible differentiae.

The most common way to fit text unto a psalm tone is by counting the word stresses. Most tones have a final cadence on either one or two word stresses. Given the variable length of the texts, there are various possibilities to treat these:

  • if the accents have the occasional unaccented syllables between them, one or more notes are added to the tone cadence. These are called epenthesis. If they precede the final stress, they are epenthesis intercalata, if they preced the penultimate accent, they are epenthesis anticipata.
  • if the portion of text between these syllables is too long for singing comfort, e.g. et de regiónibus congregávit eos (psalm 107), the words stress is abandoned in favour of the cadence.


Doxology

Since the addition of the Gloria Patri is so common (and not only to Psalms), the doxology is often unwritten or given in abbreviated form: the variable ending of the chanted psalm tone will be indicated by the final six vowels, EUOUAE ("sEcUlOrUm AmEn." G. H. Palmer's Plainchant Gradual gives the English equivalent o i ou e a e ("world without end. Amen.")

124 If the Lord himself
125 They that put their trust
126 When the Lord turned
127 Except the Lord build the house
128 Blessed are all they that fear
129 Many a time have they fought
130 Out of the deep
131 Lord, I am not high-minded

133 Behold, how good and joyful
134 Behold now, praise the Lord

140 Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man
141 Lord, I call upon thee, haste thee unto me
142 I cried unto the Lord with my voice
143 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and consider my desire
144 Blessed be the Lord my strength
145 I will magnify thee, O God
146 Praise the Lord, O my soul; while I live
147 O praise the Lord, for it is a good thing
148 O praise the Lord of heaven
149 O sing unto the Lord a new song
150 O praise God in his holiness

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
