Recent updates

Two news items here:

First, I have just posted a partial versification for Psalm 119, along with a new arrangement of its tune. Thus far I have done only verses 1-16 and 105-112, with more to come. Because this is, of course, by far the longest of the psalms, it will take some time to complete it in its entirety.

More than a year ago I heard a cantor and choir in a local Anglican church chant the gregorian tone for Psalm 119, and I was surprised at how similar it was to the opening sequence of the Genevan tune. I doubt this is mere coincidence.

Second, I have somewhat altered the formatting of the site as a whole.
