A dedicated group of Orthodox monks (who wish to remain anonymous) have created a fresh English translation of the Masoretic Hebrew text of the Psalter, corrected to the Septuagint. A frequently asked question: The Psalms aren't in numerical order in this Psalter. Why is that? Answer: That was done intentionally. This edition of the Psalter was created for prayer, at home or in church, rather than for reference. It's not just another Book of Psalms.

This recording of the psalms has been a great help to me to allow me to listen to the psalms and encourage a spirit of prayer at times when reading them is not an option - when driving, doing housework, or waiting for a small child to fall asleep. Note that they are arranged a traditional for prayer, not strictly in numerical order.
