MOUNT ATHOS: The Monks of Simonopetra Monastery in Mount Athos chanting 13 chants from the Psalms of David in the Holy Bible (VIDEO)

The Psalter has very early considered by the Orthodox Church as the "beginning, middle and end" of all its worship.

The frequent use of the Psalms, by both monastics - who have consecrated their lives to the praise of God - and devout laid-people, transports humanity from this world into an anticipation of eternal life, in communion with all the saints who before it have prayed in this manner.

It was with the aim of giving back to the Psalms of David the place that the Church always reserved for them, that the monks of Simonopetra, through the initiative of their Abbot, Archmandrite Aimilianos, set out to put the Psalter to music, according to the traditional rules of Byzantine chant. This enterprise has led to the publishing of a book numbering over of 600 pages of music manuscript, the "Psalterion Terpnon", of which the present recordings, performed by the Monastery's choir, are an illustration.
