The composer writes on Youtube:
In October 2013, I attended my first choir rehearsal at an Anglican church in Edmonton, Canada. I joined with no knowledge of the Anglican faith, being a lapsed Roman Catholic who had been attending (and was married in) a United church. Thus, at that pivotal moment, I was exposed to the rich and varied musical heritage of Anglicanism, which has profoundly affected my music to this day. However, despite the wealth of glorious hymns and anthems, it was undeniably the harmonized chant, with its endless possibilities and abstract simplicity, which inspired me the greatest. This book, the Modern Psalter, is the culmination of a fifteen-month effort to compose 150 Anglican psalm chants in my own contemporary musical language. What began as a personal experiment (with little forethought) became a project of personal growth, both in music and in faith. Throughout the three sets of chants, I hear a definitive stylistic progression, moving away from a reliance on shocking harmonies and towards more emotionally complex ideas. Although some of the chants written in this book can be at times heavy-handed and clumsy, I feel there are also moments of elegance and grace which will be of great spiritual benefit in a liturgical setting.
The book has three sections, in each section the chants are numbered sequentially. In this index the chant numbers are prefixed with the section number (roman).
