John Calvin and the Psalmody of the Reformed Churches

by Louis Fitzgerald Benson

Summary

By the turn of the 20th century, Benson had become a leading authority in Reformed hymnology. His personal library, in fact, eventually contained over 9,000 volumes. In 1907, Benson delivered Princeton Theological Seminary’s L.P. Stone Lectures, and his series of talks concerned the topic of congregational singing in the Calvinist tradition. Most of the lectures concern the development of church music in Geneva during John Calvin’s lifetime.
