Christians have made songs from the psalms in the Old Testament from the very beginnings of the Christian movement. Tom Barnett and Donald Patriquin have collaborated in Songs For The Holy One: Psalms & Refrains For Worship to provide contemporary worshipers with a songbook that draws upon our Judeo-Christian legacy to lift up our voices and worship God with new cadences for songs based upon a fresh translation of the psalms. Songs For The Holy One is especially commended to the attention of choirs directors, clergy, cantors, contemplatives, and other members of the Christian community regardless of their denominational affiliation or background.
