This page is for local use — ideas for leaders at South Woden Uniting Church while we are without a minister of the word and, very creditably and successfully, collectively managing our own affairs each Sunday.
Choosing psalm in song
I keep a spreadsheet of suggestions for the coming weeks on Dropbox. Choices focus primarily on selections from Together in song and Psalms for all seasons, of which we have multiple copies but I’ve added a few other ideas:
Many other resources are available for the enterprising — see in particular Singing from the lectionary. For modern tonalities I like The emergent psalter by Isaac Everett.
Cantor pages — music and words for various settings we have sung over the last four years, ready to print and sing — are filed on Dropbox SWUC Music/Psalm Library. Ask for sharing if you do not have it.
The blog might help
Blog posts on the psalms over the last three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary are listed and linked in the Library and Index pages; you may find inspiration from what we have done in the past. The listing only covers about half of all 150 psalms.
