Christ God that our souls be saved.
April 12 - St. Basil the Confessor 779
A psalm
is a city of refuge
from the demons; a means
of inducing help from the angels,
a weapon in fears by night, a rest from
the toils of the day, a safeguard for infants,
an adornment for those at the height of their vigor,
a consolation for the elders, a most fitting ornament for women.
It peoples the solitudes; it rids the market places of excesses; it is the
elementary exposition of beginners, the improvement of those advancing,
the solid support of the perfect, the voice of the Church. It brightens
feast day; it creates a sorrow which is in accordance with God.
For, a psalm calls forth a tear even from a heart of stone.
A psalm is the work of angels, a heavenly
institution, the spiritual incense.

April 16 - Sts. Agape, Irene, and Chionia 785
The Apostle admonishes women to be silent in church,
yet they do well to join in a psalm; this is gratifying for all
ages and fitting for both sexes. Old men ignore the stiffness of age
to sing [a psalm], and melancholy veterans echo it in the joy of their hearts;
young men sing one without the bane of lust, as do adolescents without threat from
their insecure age or the temptation of sensual pleasure; even young women sing psalms
with no loss of wifely decency, and girls sing a hymn to God with sweet and supple
voice while maintaining decorum and suffering no lapse of modesty. Youth
is eager to understand [a psalm], and the child who refuses to learn
other things takes pleasure in contemplating it; it is a kind
of play, productive of more learning that that
which is dispensed with stern discipline.

A psalm consoles the sad, restrains the joyful, tempers the angry, refreshes the poor

Sing to God,
not with the voice,
but with the heart; not,
after the fashion of tragedians,
in smearing the throat with a sweet
drug, so that theatrical melodies and songs
are heard in the church, but in fear, in work, and
in knowledge of the Scriptures. And although a man be
cacophonous, if he have good works, he is a sweet singer before God.
- St. Jerome

April 28 - The Nine Martyrs of Cyzicus 813
One who jubilates does not speak words, but it is rather a sort of sound of joy without
words, since it is the voice of a soul poured out in joy and expressing, as best it can, the
feeling, though not grasping the sense. A man delighting in his joy, from some words
which cannot be spoken or understood, bursts forth in a certain voice of exultation
without words, so that it seems he does indeed rejoice with his own voice, but as if,
because filled with too much joy, he cannot explain in words what it is in which he
delights. You observe this even in those who sing improperly. Now our jubilation will
not be such as theirs, for we ought to jubilate in justification, while they jubilate in
iniquity; we, then, in confession, they in confusion. Yet that you might understand
what I say, call to mind what you well know, that it is especially those who perform
some task in the fields who jubilate. Mowers and vintagers and those who gather other
products, happy in the abundance of harvest and gladdened by the very richness and
fecundity of the earth, sing in joy. And between the songs which they express in words,
they insert certain sounds without words in the elevation of an exultant spirit, and this
is called jubilation.
- Blessed Augustine
