Publisher's Summary

Authentic Benedictine Chants You Can Learn at Home
Fifteen-hundred years ago, St. Benedict established a system of ora et labora prayer and work that monastics still follow today. Central to this prayerful integration of body and spirit is psalmody, or chanting the psalms. In Singing the Psalms, Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault shows how the psalms can awaken rich spiritual and psychological insights accessible to you today, whatever your level of vocal skill or theological understanding.

EXCELLENT introduction

This is an excellent introduction to chanting in the Christian tradition. The Audible version would benefit from a pdf download of the song book.

Amazing!

I have been looking for a way to relate to the Psalms, this has done that for me!
I wish there was a web site to go to to see the Psalms that are being sung!
