About the book:

Chanting the psalms, or psalmody, is an ancient practice of vital importance in the Christian spiritual tradition. Today many think of it as a discipline that belongs only in monasteriesbut psalmody is a spiritual treasure that is available to anyone who prays. You dont need to be musical or a monk to do it, and it can be enjoyed in church liturgical worship, in groups, or even individually as part of a personal rule of prayer. Cynthia Bourgeault brings the practice into the twenty-first century, providing a history of Christian psalmody as well as an appreciation of its place in contemplative practice today. And she teaches you how to do it as you chant along with her on the accompanying CD in which she demonstrates the basic techniques and easy melodies that anyone can learn. Even if you cant read music, Cynthia says, or if somewhere along the way youve absorbed the message that your voice is no good or you cant sing on pitch, Ill still hope to show you that chanting the psalms is accessible to nearly everyone.
