The Hermitage of the Holy Cross has recorded the reading of the Psalter on three compact discs. Our text of the Psalms was translated by Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Brookline, MA, from the 1821 Moscow edition of the Greek Septuagint Psalter, the most trusted and reliable of all extant printings of the traditional Greek text of Orthodox Church. The Psalms are read in a manner common to Orthodox prayer services: a simple intonation minimizing any possibility of subjective interpretation. The arrangement of the Psalms into tracks also follows the liturgical practice of the Orthodox Church, where the whole Psalter is divided into twenty Kathismata and each Kathisma into three stases. Each stasis is concluded with a Trinitarian Doxology. The Psalter is read by a monk of the Hermitage of the Holy Cross. Our hope is that those who purchase this recording will reap years of spiritual benefit from the use of the recording which is an excellent accompaniment on a daily commute, road trip or a day at work.
