One of the things I love about this book is the additional instructions that are included and are not a part of the text. The Psalms are a Hymn book. They communicate everything from what type of instruments should be used, what tune they should be sung to, where the interludes are and what volume they are to be played at. I so wish there were written music to actually hear them the way they were intended, but we must also remember that they were written for the most part in Hebrew so we miss out on some of the word play and poetry that would have been there in the original language.
