Abstract: King David with his harp is the most common icon for Christian music throughout the centuries reflecting the importance of psalm singing within the Christian tradition. Yet despite the depiction of a musical instrument and references to musical instruments throughout the psalms, it is quite difficult to get accurate information about the actual performance of the psalms in the first millennium of the church. In this article, I hope to sketch out some of what scholars have discovered about psalm singing in the early middle ages and to explore in greater depth the practices of psalmody in the later middle ages. In the context of the work of church musicians, I want to approach this material asking a few questions: What role did psalms play in the spiritual lives of people in the middle ages? What aspects of the music contributed to their spiritual experience? What can we learn from the experience of the medieval church that might help us renew psalm singing in our churches today?
