Publisher's Description

Tunes in this Psalter were collected by Dr. George Guest during his 40 year tenure as Organist and Choirmaster of St. John's College, Cambridge University, Cambridge, England. They are arranged according to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America, and are pointed for chanting.

"Informed by a quiet but profound spirituality, Dr. Guest directed the music at St. John's College, Cambridge University for 40 years until his retirement in 1991, where he was university organist (1974-91) and lecturer (1956-82). Guest often remarked that you can only reach a man's head through his heart. It is not therefore surprising that, as the years went on, the chanting of the psalms became an ever more considered and thoughtful meditation. He realized that the Anglican Evensong was the Church of England's greatest gift to the Christian world. It was his genius to give a unique and abiding expression to that liturgy that will live for generations to come."
John Gummer, The Guardian
