The Trinity Psalter Hymnal One-Year Plan

http://sites.google.com/site/tphyearplan/

This is a guide to singing through the Psalms in one year.

The following plan (in 52 weeks) groups together, according to length, the full Psalm settings as evenly as possible. In weeks with five or six Psalms, you can sing one each day of the week, Monday through Friday or Saturday, then on the following Sunday you can re-sing two or three in the morning, and two or three in the evening. In weeks with fewer but longer Psalms, you can divide the total number of stanzas (e.g., by 5 or 6) and sing a portion each day of the week (and re-sing them all on Sunday). In this way, you'll sing through the entire Psalms twice each year.

Audio files for the Psalm tunes are available at Hymnary.

In the Trinity Psalter Hymnal, some of the Psalms have only one setting (e.g., Psalm 3), and have no additional designation. For those Psalms with more than one setting, the first setting is a full Psalm, designated as “A” (e.g., Psalm 1A); additional settings may also be full. However, Psalm 119 is an exception. It has 22 distinct sections, and the alphabetical designations (A through V) correspond to those sections. Full Psalm settings include verse numbers with the text. The partial or paraphrased Psalms are indicated at the end of the setting. Including the 22 sections of Psalm 119, there are at least 171 full settings in the Trinity Psalter Hymnal.
