Singing Psalms: An Outpouring of Contemporary Song for Congregational Use

Remarkably, even since the publication of Psalms for All Seasons just a few years ago, over 30 new Psalm-based songwriting and recording projects have emerged from a variety of contemporary worship leaders across North America and beyond. While some of these settings are designed for solo voices, many are well-suited to congregational use, and are worthy heirs to the legacy of congregation-based Psalms re-established by Luther and Calvin.

During this workshop, the audience and the leaders came together to explore a variety of examples of this music, as well as the stories behind the songs. In addition, they explored how they can shape a worship culture in their context that is eager to embrace and explore the rich texts of the Biblical Psalms.
