How Scottish Is The Scottish Psalter? William Mure Of Rowallan, Zachary Boyd, And The Metrical Psalter Of 1650, Peter Auger

Studies in Scottish Literature

Reassesses the origin and sources for the Scottish metrical psalter of 1650, in particular the contributions and influence of Sir William Mure of Rowallan and Zachary Boyd, questioning the statistical analysis of specific phrases by William Rorison on which most previous discussions have relied, and focusing instead on circumstances of the revision, the complex interrelation of multiple available versions, and the significance of Mure's version as a model of what Scottish psalmody could be, rather than as a source for particular verses or lines.
