Singing Psalms, Understanding Structure

Singing Psalms, Understanding Structure

Re: Psalms.

I'd like to see some music for Psalms that chants a Psalm as written (English for now, I suppose), and then writes something that shows the structure, as JBJ does in his monthly Psalm writings.

And then back to the Psalm as written, chanted, for greater appreciation.

Off the top of my head, if there are 7 uses of a word, singing them 1234567 would be a showing of the structure.

Also, a chiastic Psalms could have the two A portions sung consecutively, with a SHOUT or other emphasis on the chiasmizing words or phrases.

Love in King Jesus,
