"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Sons of Korah

    Although the contributors to this site have a variety of opinions on relatively minor matters, it is, as the name suggests, openly and unashamedly Reformed in its essential theology and viewpoints. And really, what is a more historically Reformed practice than psalm-singing? Simply speaking, the psalms were meant to be sung. There are few things more helpful in the daily battle for sanctification than to have the psalms always running through one's heart; and putting them to music is a tremendously valuable way to assist in that endeavor. Therefore, I'm always on the lookout for resources to aid in congregational or personal singing of the psalms. One group I came across some time ago, which has been a huge blessing to me, is the Sons of Korah. They put a modern, non-metrical translation of the psalms to music. Their songs are exclusively psalms, quite often psalms in their entirety, set to emotional, affective music which reflects the content of the individual psalms very appropriately. They already have five full albums available, with a sixth coming out anytime now. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Their website is sonsofkorah.com. Here's a youtube sample for you to check out:

    Jason Coghill is also an artist that does psalms as well and he was also associated with Sons of Korah.

    Yes, I appreciate him as well. His website is ministryofpsalms.com

    Thanks Nathan for letting us know about these Psalms set to music.

    That picture sure looks like the Southern Alps here in New Zealand.

    As a relative new comer to the Reformed Pres Church in Northern Ireland I'm very pleased to read your opinion of the Sons of Korah before buying an album.
    Thanks.

    I have been listening to Sons of Korah for about 6 or 7 years, they are my favorite band. My favorite album of theirs is Redemption Songs. That album was recorded back in 2000 when Jason Coghill and Marcus Hayden were still part of SOK. Jason still sings the psalms, with a little different style than SOK, he also does covers of popular songs. Marcus Hayden is not quite so known about, he does some Christian music, but mostly writes his own (not Christian,but the influence can be seen) songs and has gigs, has an EP etc. He was in concert with them not too long ago. Sadly I have not seen them live bc I live over 10,000 miles from their home in Geelong, Australia. Sons of Korah has a folky sound, especially in the ones I like the most so yeah.
