The Psalms were rendered into English verse by Francis Hopkinson, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. There are one hundred fifty Psalms in metre, accompanied on every page by the printed music. The type for the music notes was ordered from Daniel Cromelin, of Amsterdam, in 1764.

The same musical treatment is given to the Creed and the Lord's Prayer" - Church. EVANS 10561. ESTC W6234. CHURCH 1067. AMERICAN SACRED MUSIC IMPRINTS 398.
