The Psalms and Canticles of The Holy Bible (ESV),
and Other Ancient Songs,
Pointed for Speech-Rhythm Chant and Set to Music
English chant (also known as Anglican chant) emerged from the church’s plainsong tradition in sixteenth century England and has been refined over the subsequent centuries. Today, this style of chant appears in one form or another in the hymnals and liturgies of many churches, including Anglican, Lutheran, Reformed, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic churches.
