Some time ago, I felt a burning desire to set the Psalms to music.  I did some research about the Psalms to capture the feeling and sense of how they might have sounded when they were originally used in the Hebrew worship service.  We will never know, but I have captured a sense of what that sound might have been.  It is not with standard rhythm and pitch of modern-day compositions.  It is entirely motivated by heart and emotion. 
Many years ago I purchased the Bible on tape and it has been such a comfort to me over the years.  There is great power in the spoken Word of God!
I have also engaged a Music Therapy technique in that all the Psalms are at a peacful target heart rate, or slower.  Not only will your heart be soothed by the Word of God, but your body will be calmed as well.

Thank you and I pray that you are strengthened and blessed as much by these musical Psalms as I have been by my recordings of the Word of God.  God bless you.

The use of the epic song in worship started with the Hebrews,
centuries before the Greek epics were written.
The earliest Hebrew worship songs arose out of a religious feeling toward God at important moments.  The Hebrews did not apply intricate melodies to their epics.
The tonal range of their songs was probably not great,
and they selected rhythm instruments rather than melodic instruments.
The melodies of the Psalms and other story songs were well-known in their time,
and were probably sung in verses by choirs.
It is clear that the Hebrews came to consider the story songs an essential part of their worship.
Their music sprang from the soul of a people whose everyday life was religiously ordered.
