CICW Global Psalm Gallery

A crowd-sourced collection of Psalm interpretations from worshiping communities across the spectrum of Christian traditions that premiered at the 2021 Calvin Symposium on Worship.

A combination of visual art and musical settings, these 36 psalm gallery entries were submitted for use at the online Calvin Symposium on Worship. For each entry, the submitter was asked to respond to two questions:

  • How does this psalm piece interpret the psalm?
  • What are your suggestions for liturgical use? 

The entries vary in language and medium, in genre and in length. From each, there is much to be gained. 

Each entry also contains copyright information and contact information for the submitter and/or copyright holder if you wish to use their entry in another setting.
