Not so long ago, every service in an Irish Presbyterian Church featured the singing of at least one “metrical Psalm” – Psalms rewritten into poetic verses to  make them more singable – and often sung in four part harmony.  It’s a musical tradition going back to the reformation – but these days, Presbyterian churches are more likely to be singing modern Christian songs.   In a special programme Kist o Wurds will be looking at where the Metrical Psalms came from – and where they’ve gone.
