The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship is pleased to collaborate with Princeton Theological Seminary's touring choir on this cd of songs from the brand new songbook Psalms for All Seasons: A Complete Psalter for Worship (Faith Alive Christian Resources, Baker Publishing Group, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, 2012).

Martin Tel, Director of Music at Princeton Theological Seminary, writes "while continuing to nurture our Reformed roots, Psalms for All Seasons also reflects our broad ecumenicity as well as the reach of our global community. And it uncovers the breadth of the psalms themselves. Through these psalms we address God and listen to God; we cry, complain, and confess; we give thanks, praise, and honor; we offer and receive blessing."

Tracks 1, 3, 5, 6, 17, and 21 were recorded live at a psalm singing festival led by Chi Yi Chen, Jorge Lockward, and William Heard in Miller Chapel in the fall of 2011. All other tracks were recorded in Miller Chapel by members of the 2011-2012 Princeton Seminary Touring Choir expressly for this CD collection. Taken together, these recordings form an audio companion to the new Psalter: Psalms for All Seasons. We hope that together they may inspire and teach new ways of singing and praying psalms in worship.

Our hope is that Sing Praise to the Lord! can serve as a teaching tool for choir directors, worship leaders, and others who teach and lead congregational song. Psalms for All Seasons is designed for use in corporate worship—to be placed in the hands of worship leaders, choirs, and, ideally, all worshipers. Most congregations across the wide spectrum of approaches to worship will be able to find at least 100 settings in the songbook accessible and fitting for their own approach, another 100 that they can easily learn (perhaps with the aid of this collection), and then several dozen (or hundred!) more to stretch them in new directions.
