The Book of Psalms, audio format?
« on: October 09, 2008, 11:41:57 AM »
Anyone know of a decent source (inexpensive) for an audio version, either on CD or mp3 format, for the Psalms in English?  A few places on the intarwebs have free mp3 offerings, but I either do not like the translation used or I the reader's voice just doesn't do it for me.  Ideally I'd like the HTM translation, but I doubt such a thing even exists.

Of course, I could just make one myself for my private use, which is the direction I seem to be heading.

Maybe this one?

"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...."

IT's fantastic!  The psalms are chanted in a monotone at a decent pace, not too fast and not too slow.  It's a fixture on my ipod and I often play through a kathisma or two often I'm walking the dog.
